About the Project

This section of Route 7 (Leesburg Pike) is severely congested in both directions during the a.m. and p.m. rush. 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.

The project widens 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 utilities are located along the project, including a 24-inch gas line, a 12-inch water line, fiber optic communications, telephone and electrical lines. Utility relocation will continue while the project is under construction.

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.
