Although it is just 75 miles long overall, Interstate 66 provides an important connection from the western suburbs of Washington, DC, to the nation's capital. Interstate 66 is short in the District of Columbia, and comes to an end uneventfully at U.S. 29 near the Rock Creek Parkway interchange.

Interstate 66 East approaching U.S. 50 East - Constitution
Ave./Downtown exit. Interstate exits are not numbered in
the District of Columbia, and there is no welcome sign into
the nation's capital.
View of Washington from Interstate 66 East as it crosses
the Potomac River. The Washington Monument is visible.
The gantry ahead is for the Independence Ave. exit.
Interstate 66 East at Independence Ave. exit. This is
also the final gantry before the U.S. 50 East exit.
Interstate 66 has made a turn to the north as the exit
for E Street comes into view. Interstate 66 in the District
of Columbia is definitely not interstate-standard. And I
thought the nation's capital should set the example for
the rest of the nation! Sheesh!
Interstate 66 East approaching its end. The Rock Creek
Parkway is its final interchange.
Interstate 66 East at the Rock Creek Parkway exit, which
is inside this short tunnel. The freeway becomes the
Whitehurst Freeway. No "END I-66" signage is present.
There isn't even one Interstate 66 shield to be found on
eastbound in DC!
Interstate 66 now becomes an off-ramp to the Whitehurst
Freeway exit (U.S. 29 South). Before the highways merge,
there is one more exit, for one of the most famous streets
in the world, Pennsylvania Avenue.
Gore point signage at Pennsylvania Avenue. The highway
will now merge into U.S. 29 South.
