Major I-66 Eastbound Delays Due Friday

Motorists traveling eastbound on the Interstate 66, the Dulles Toll Road and in the area around Washington Dulles International Airport on the afternoon of Friday, August 19 are advised of road closures and major traffic delays due to a September 11, 2001 motorcycle tribute procession traveling through Leesburg, beginning at 2 p.m., to the Pentagon.

The America’s 9/11 Foundation, Inc. is expecting more than 1,800 motorcyclists to participate in a ride from Shanksville, Pennsylvania to the Pentagon then to the site of the World Trade Center in New York City. On Friday, the group will travel eastbound along the Dulles Greenway, the Dulles Toll Road, the Dulles Airport Access Highway and Interstate 66, causing major traffic delays-especially for commuters on the eastbound Dulles Toll Road and all motorists leaving Dulles Airport.

Police departments from all the jurisdictions affected will escort the motorcycle procession and the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police will provide escort from the Dulles Greenway to Interstate-66.
