About the Project

This project widened about a mile and a half of Route 7 from four to six lanes with a raised median and included:

  • 10-foot-wide shared-use path in both directions
  • Lengthened turn lanes
  • New traffic signal at the intersection of Redberry Court and the relocated Woody’s Golf Course entrance
  • Improved intersection operation, particularly at Georgetown Pike, Route 7 and Seneca Road

Major utility relocations also occurred, including a 24-inch gas line, 12-inch water line, fiber optic communications, and telephone and electrical lines. 

This section of Route 7 (Leesburg Pike) is severely congested in both directions during rush hours. Widening and upgrading intersections will help relieve congestion and improve air quality, road operation and safety. In 2011, Route 7 carried 60,000 vehicles per day in this area and by 2034, is expected to carry 87,000 vehicles per day.
