Route 7 Westbound Lane Shift between Colvin Run Road/Carpers Farm Way and Springvale Road/Baron Cameron Avenue in Great Falls on or about Nov. 10
Lanes shift to the north while crews continue construction
GREAT FALLS - On or about Nov. 10, drivers on Route 7 westbound will experience a lane shift to the north (to the right, away from the median) between Colvin Run Road/Carpers Farm Way and Springvale Road/Baron Cameron Avenue while crews continue to build the improvements along Route 7.
The median crossover approximately one-half mile east of Springvale Road/Baron Cameron Avenue will close permanently. See map below for details.
All residences, businesses and other public facilities will remain accessible. Please use caution and be alert to vehicles and equipment entering and exiting the work area.
All work is weather-dependent and subject to change.
For information on intersection movements at the completion of construction, please see the interactive map on the project website.
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.
