About the Project
The purpose of this project is to improve traffic operations and safety at the intersection of Route 7 and Williams Gap Road.
Westbound Route 7 was widened with the addition of a 350 ft. long right-turn only lane plus a 200 ft. long taper. About 150 ft. of Williams Gap Road was re-graded and hard-surfaced in order to effectively tie into the new turn lane. Drainage improvements were also made within the project limits.
