ROUTE 7 TRAFFIC SHIFT WEDNESDAY NIGHT
Eastbound Route 7 traffic shifting to temporary lanes, no access to/from Sugarland Road

DRANESVILLE – Between 9 p.m. Wednesday, August 26 and 5 a.m. Thursday, August 27, eastbound Route 7 traffic will be shifted to new temporary lanes between Rolling Holly Drive and Reston Avenue, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

In addition, Sugarland Road at Route 7 will be closed to traffic until late September/early October so that the intersection can be reconstructed and improved. Motorists will be detoured via Fairfax County Parkway. Detour signs will be in place to direct local traffic around the closure.

The work is part of the third phase of construction for the project to widen Route 7 from four to six lanes between Rolling Holly Drive and Reston Avenue. The $34 million project is scheduled for completion in December.
