    Authorities are closing parts of the Capital Beltway and Interstate 66 in northern Virginia overnight Wednesday and Thursday as part of the I-66 Express Lanes project. 

    The Virginia Department of Transportation says the closures support installation of tolling infrastructure on I-66 inside the Beltway, which will allow solo drivers to use I-66 during rush hour if they pay a variable toll. 

    On Wednesday, single-lane closures will begin at 9:30 p.m. on eastbound I-66 between Route 7 and Glebe Road. All eastbound lanes will close for 20-minute intervals between midnight and 4 a.m. Thursday. 

    On Thursday, the Beltway's Inner Loop will be closed near the Route 50 exit. Again, single-lane closures will begin at 9:30 p.m. and all northbound lanes will close in 20-minute intervals between midnight and 4 a.m. Friday.
