I-66 Lane Striping Problem

All News 99.1 WNEW

FAIRFAX, Va. (WNEW/AP) — Crooked and curving lines on a major Fairfax County roadway are causing confusion for some drivers.

The problem occurred Monday morning on eastbound Interstate 66 from Centreville to Gainesville.

The Virginia Department of Transportation says temporary lane striping that crews put down over the weekend peeled up and moved.

Officials say the right lane and shoulder are closed for the work until 3:30 p.m., and crews will continue tonight from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Tuesday. Drivers can expect up to two lanes and a shoulder to be closed overnight.

The agency says it is looking into what caused the striping come unstuck.
