Working Group

The Route 7 Widening Working Group is a collaborative effort among VDOT, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation, local board members, community representatives and other stakeholders that have helped shape the scope and design for Route 7. The group's purpose and goals include:

  • Gathering community input toward design that is sensitive to community needs
  • Developing a partnering relationship between the community and designers
  • Preparing for public meetings 
  • Fostering open communication between the design team and the public

Since 2012, the group has met on topics such as environmental impacts, land development along the corridor, bicycle and pedestrian needs, innovative intersection designs, high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane feasibility, mass transit and bus service, and storm water management.  For past meeting minutes, please click the links below:
