State crews are working on several road construction projects along the Route 7 Corridor this summer.
The speed limit has been reduced to 45 miles per hour in the project’s active work zones.
Construction of a third left turn lane from westbound Route 7 to southbound Baron Cameron Avenue is expected to be complete by the end of the summer.
Crews are also continuing work to widen the shoulders on westbound Route 7 between the Colvin Run Mill area and Reston Avenue. Once work is completed, the westbound lanes will shift to the right to give crews space to construction temporary eastbound lanes.
The Virginia Department of Transportation cautions drivers to watch out for signs indicating changes to traffic patterns in the area.
Other minor work including pipe installation, median excavation, utility and temporary signal work is ongoing in the median of Route 7 between the Colvin Run Mill area and Reston Avenue.
