ROSSLYN – I-66 is scheduled to have overnight lane closures at the Rosslyn Tunnel Monday night, May 4 through Thursday night, May 7 to remove scaffolding on the eastern end of the tunnel as part of the Lynn Street Esplanade and Custis Trail Improvements project, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

A public art installation by Arlington County called “Corridor of Light” will also be incorporated, with prominent elements at each of the four corners of the North Lynn Street bridge over I-66.
