About the Transform 66 P3 Project

The $3.5 billion Transform 66 P3 Project, extending 22 miles along the Interstate 66 corridor outside of the Beltway between US Route 29 near Gainesville in Prince William County and Interstate 495 in Fairfax County, will add capacity, improve mobility and provide more predictable travel times for Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C. metro region. It is the first project to follow Virginia’s reformed P3 process.

The project will be developed as a public-private partnership between the Commonwealth of Virginia and I-66 Express Mobility Partners, which includes equity members Cintra and Meridiam, and lead contractors Ferrovial Agroman US Corp. and Allan Myers VA, Inc.

Once completed, the project will provide significant upgrades to the highly congested corridor such as:

  • Three regular lanes in each direction
  • Two express lanes in each direction with a state of the art open-road electronic toll collection system
  • Direct access between the express lanes and new or expanded commuter lots
  • New and expanded transit service and park-and-ride lots
  • Interchange improvements to enhance safety and reduce congestion, including auxiliary lanes between interchanges, where needed
