FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA/AP) - Crooked and curving lines on a major Fairfax County roadway are causing confusion for drivers.

The problem occurred Monday morning on Interstate 66 goes from Centreville to Gainesville.

The Virginia Department of Transportation said temporary lane striping that crews put down over the weekend peeled up and moved.

The department said a contractor is working to fix the problem.

The agency also said it was looking into what caused the striping to come unstuck.
