Auxiliary routes

No auxiliary routes were constructed. Interstate 266 was planned in northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. It was cancelled in 1972 due to community opposition and environmental concerns. Interstate 266 (abbreviated I-266) was a proposed loop route from Interstate 66 between Washington, D.C., and Arlington County, Virginia. ...

  • Because I-66 is the only major highway running west from Washington, D.C., into Northern Virginia, traffic on the road is often extremely heavy. For decades, there has been talk of widening I-66 from 2 to 3 lanes each way inside the Capital Beltway (through Arlington, Virginia), although many Arlington residents are adamantly opposed to this plan. Studies are being conducted by VDOT on the prospect of implementing this one-lane extension on westbound I-66 within the Beltway (thus alleviating congestion for people commuting away from DC).[1]

  • Because of that heavy traffic, I-66 has HOV lanes.
    • Between Route 234 in Manassas, Virginia and the Beltway, the left lane on eastbound I-66 is reserved for HOV-2 during morning rush hour, and the left lane on westbound I-66 is reserved for HOV-2 during evening rush hour. Also during those rush hours, the right-hand shoulder is available for use as a travel lane. [2]
    • Within the Beltway (between the Beltway and the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge), the entire eastbound (inbound) roadway is reserved for HOV-2 and Dulles Airport traffic during morning rush hour, and the entire westbound (outbound) roadway is reserved for HOV-2 and Dulles Airport traffic during evening rush hour. This is readily and easily enforced, since no single-passenger vehicles are allowed to come onto the highway at all within the beltway in the direction of rush-hour traffic. These restrictions may result more in a displacement of rush-hour than in an alleviation; I-66 is observed as relatively clear where and when they are in place, and congested for some time before and after.
  • This is the only 2 digit Interstate to enter the District of Columbia (other than the 100 yards (100 m) or so that I-95 passes through DC on the Woodrow Wilson Bridge). I-66 was planned to intersect I-95, before I-95 was rerouted to the east side of the Capital Beltway.
  • In 2005, as part of the reconstruction of the plaza in front of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, an entrance was opened from 25th Street, N.W., to westbound I-66. However, at least one sign in the vicinity misidentified the route as the unrelated (and no longer existent) U.S. Highway 66.
  • Construction is currently underway for the widening of I-66 on both East and Westbound routes between Route 234 in Manassas and the westernmost intersection with U.S. Route 29 in Gainesville

Historical controversy

As with many urban interstate highway projects, I-66 has encountered opposition from local citizen groups. Most notably for I-66 was the construction through Arlington, Virginia, proposed in 1956. The Arlington Coalition on Transportation (ACT) filed a lawsuit in Federal District Court in 1971 opposing the portion of the project through Arlington. The group objected to that urban segment due to concerns over air quality, noise and community cohesion changes. In 1972 the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of ACT, technically blocking any construction. The impasse was eventually broken when the parties agreed on experts to conduct air quality and noise studies for the Virginia Department of Transportation, then known as the Virgina Department of Highways; then, Secretary of Transportation Coleman personally intervened in 1976 with negotiations to reach a compromise of a reduced highway width including a transit element.[3][4] Arlington County is a county located in the U.S. state of Virginia (which calls itself a commonwealth), directly across the Potomac River from Washington, DC.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has had plans to extend I-66 westward across the country to California. However, Interstate 66 west of Wichita, Kansas has been canceled. This was due to several reasons, among them: lack of interest in the states west of Kansas, insufficient traffic for an interstate in the area (in fact, in some places a highway didn't exist at all), and the route was to go through Death Valley National Park (to which the National Park Service was strongly opposed). The main reason for that specific number was to capitalize off U.S. Highway 66 and was started by businessmen in Wichita. Wikipedia does not have an article with this exact name. ...

Former Governor Paul Patton has written I-66 into law in Kentucky, with the routing being confirmed along the Hal Rogers Parkway (formerly Daniel Boone Parkway) and the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Parkway. Preliminary construction has started on a segment in Pulaski County. There would be a long section with a southwest-northeast trajectory required to connect with the existing I-66; many believe a lower number (there are no east-west Interstates numbered in the 50s, and the proposed highway is south of Interstate 64) would make more sense for the Kentucky extension.

Missouri has had several proposals to bring I-66 through the state over the years. Currently the two main locations for consideration are bringing I-66 from Kentucky through Illinois to Cape Girardeau (which would require going through Shawnee National Forest), or bringing the route through close to the current bridges by Wyatt to Sikeston where it could multiplex onto the current U.S. Route 60 westward. Illinois has only recently gained interest in bringing I-66 through their state.[5] If Cape Girardeau and Illinois cannot lure Congress to modify the route through there, Sikeston may eventually be the convergence point of three major Interstates, I-55 to St. Louis and Memphis, I-57 to Chicago, and the new I-66 to Kentucky and Washington, D.C. in addition to the considerable pieces of the U.S. Highway System already present there.
