Two lanes of westbound I-66 are closed prior to Sycamore Street due to an apparent gravel spill.

VDOT crews are on their way to the scene to clean up the loose gravel, but Arlington County officials say they don’t know long the clean-up will take.

Just before 9:30 a.m. a car slammed into the guardrail on westbound I-66 beneath the Patrick Henry Drive underpass, near the gravel spill. It’s not clear if the gravel caused or is somehow related to the accident.

    Good thing we built that third lane.

    Unfortunately I’m the one who slammed into the guard rail – it was DEFINITELY caused by the gravel across all three lanes. People were fishtailing as the police took my report and we waited for the tow truck and clean up crew.
