ROUTE 7 WIDENING NEARS COMPLETION
New three-lane section open from Rolling Holly to Reston Avenue


DRANESVILLE – Crews have opened a newly built third lane in each direction on Route 7 from Rolling Holly Drive to Reston Avenue, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The $34 million project to widen the mile-and-a-half stretch of Route 7 also includes shared-use paths, lengthened turn lanes, a new signal at Redberry Court and intersection improvements at Georgetown Pike and Seneca Road. All work is scheduled to be complete in early January.

Drivers can expect some intermittent daytime lane closures as crews work on the project’s final details.
