Intersection along the Route 7 Corridor Provide Input Stay Informed

About Route 7 Corridor Improvements

The Route 7 Corridor Improvements Project will improve 6.9 miles of Route 7 between Reston Avenue and Jarrett Valley Drive. Some of the proposed work includes the widening of Route 7 from four to six lanes, intersection improvements, and adding 10 foot wide shared-use paths on both sides of the road. These improvements will decrease congestion, increase capacity, improve safety, and expand mobility for cyclists and pedestrians - all in conformity with Fairfax County’s Comprehensive Plan.
