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 is being 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 is being re-graded and hard-surfaced in order to effectively tie into the new turn lane. Drainage improvements are also being made within the project limits.
