GREAT FALLS - Starting the week of Sept. 26, the Colvin Run Road (west) intersection will open to all movements at Route 7. The following movements will be restored:

  • Drivers on westbound Route 7 will be able to turn right onto Colvin Run Road (west).

As part of the improvements along Route 7 currently under construction, the following new movements will be permitted:

All work is weather-dependent and subject to change.

Please note crews are only working within the VDOT right of way and where rights have been acquired from property owners (read more).

As a reminder, the Route 7 speed limit has been reduced to 45 miles per hour in active work zones between Reston Avenue and Jarrett Valley Drive, and Virginia law prohibits the use of handheld cell phones while driving through an active work zone.

Please use caution and be alert to work zone signs, potential flagger or police direction, and watch for traffic shifts. Slow-moving vehicles and equipment may be entering or exiting the road.
