The second of Virginia’s two public meetings on how to improve I-66 outside the Capital Beltway is scheduled from 5 to 8 o’clock tonight at the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Northern Virginia headquarters in Fairfax.

The study underway will look at various ways to improve travel in the Interstate 66 corridor from the Beltway west to Route 15 in Prince William County, a distance of about 25 miles.

VDOT says the study will identify transportation needs within the corridor and evaluate the impact of proposed improvements. The study is scheduled to be done in late 2012.

The meeting site, VDOT’s Northern Virginia District Office, is at 4975 Alliance Dr., Fairfax.
