Nearby: Changes Coming as Part of Route 7 Widening

Traffic LightWednesday night into Thursday morning, traffic on eastbound Route 7 between Rolling Holly Drive and Reston Avenue near Great Falls will shift into new temporary lanes as the Virginia Department of Transportation works on widening Route 7.

The Virginia Department of Transportation says the change will begin Wednesday at 9 p.m. and the lane shift should be complete by 5 p.m. Thursday.

In addition, Sugarland Road at Route 7 will be closed to traffic until late September/early October so that the intersection can be reconstructed and improved, says VDOT.

Motorists will be detoured via Fairfax County Parkway. Detour signs will be in place to direct local traffic around the closure.

The work is part of the third phase of construction for the project to widen Route 7 from four to six lanes between Rolling Holly Drive and Reston Avenue. The $34 million project is scheduled for completion in December.
