About the Project

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

  • 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 will also continue during construction, for a 24-inch gas line, a 12-inch water line, fiber optic communications, 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.

Traffic Impacts

Drivers can expect single-lane closures along Route 7 weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. (noon Friday). Nighttime lane closures may also be in place 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday-Thursday nights, 10 p.m. Fridays to 9 a.m. Saturdays and 10 p.m. Saturdays to 8 a.m. Sundays.
