The Virginia Department of Transportation’s Interstate 66 westbound detour in Manassas, which was suspended during the Presidents Cup, has resumed through Friday, Sept. 30 between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

The westbound detour also will be in effect from 9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1 to 9 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, and tentatively 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3 to 5 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4.

Beginning the night of Oct. 3, crews will switch the detour to eastbound I-66 between Route 234/Sudley Road and Route 234 Bypass in Manassas. The eastbound detour will continue for about 30 days.

The eastbound detour will be in effect Monday through Thursday nights from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m., 9 p.m. Fridays until 9 a.m. Saturdays, and 9 p.m. Saturdays until 9 a.m. Sundays. There will be no eastbound detour on Sunday nights.

Traffic is being detoured to Route 29. The detour will not be in effect during Nissan Pavilion events or whenever weather does not permit.

Crews are removing 16 lane miles of old pavement and adding several inches of new pavement to I-66, which is being widened to eight lanes.

The Eastbound lanes on I-66 also will be detoured. Take Exit 43 to Route 29 North and stay on it for about four miles. Turn right on Route 234 Business South and stay on Route 234 Business South for one mile and re-enter I-66 East. Prince William Parkway motorists wanting to access I-66 will be detoured to Balls Ford Road and take Route 234 Business North to I-66 East.
