NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN AT ROUTE 7 WIDENING
Westbound traffic shift scheduled for Wednesday

DRANESVILLE – Drivers are asked to be aware of a new traffic pattern on westbound Route 7 beginning Wednesday night, July 30, as Virginia Department of Transportation crews shift traffic between Reston Avenue and the Fairfax County Parkway.

Crews will shift traffic slightly to the south for the next phase of construction. Residents and businesses along westbound Route 7, including access to Redberry Court, will use a temporary access road. This access road will be open at all times. Residents will be able to access both directions of Route 7 from the new signal at Redberry Court.

Improvements to this intersection are part of the project to widen Route 7 to three lanes in each direction between Rolling Holly Drive and Reston Avenue. The $37 million project will be complete in Dec. 2015. Visit the VDOT project page for details.
