VDOT: Wider Route 7 Now Open

Traffic LightThe Virginia Department of Transportation says the newly built third lanes in each direction on Route 7 from Rolling Holly Drive to Reston Avenue are now open.

The $34 million project to widen the mile-and-a-half stretch of Route 7 also includes shared-use paths, lengthened turn lanes, a new signal at Redberry Court and intersection improvements at Georgetown Pike and Seneca Road. All work is scheduled to be complete in early January.

Drivers can expect some intermittent daytime lane closures as crews work on the project’s final details, says VDOT.

The expanded lanes should alleviate traffic tie-ups from Reston through Great Falls to Sterling.
