In Design: Route 7 Westbound over Sugarland Run Bridge Rehabilitation in Fairfax County

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

This project will rehabilitate the westbound Route 7 (Leesburg Pike) bridge over Sugarland Run. The bridge was built in 1947 and widened in 2000.

The planned improvements include:

  • A new concrete bridge deck.
  • Bridge pier and abutment repairs.
  • Guardrail upgrades and new curb and gutter in the area of the bridge.

The project originally called for further improvements including widening the bridge and extending the acceleration lane from the Fairfax County Parkway (Route 286) on-ramp to Dranesville Road (Route 228); these components are no longer part of the project. 

This section of Route 7 (westbound and eastbound combined) averages 59,000 vehicles a day.

Estimated Costs 
Preliminary Engineering - $1.2 million
Construction - $5 million
Total - $6.2 million

The project is financed with state and federal State of Good Repair funds used for maintenance of structures and bridges.


This project aims to improve safety and extend the overall life of the bridge.
