Route 7 Corridor in Northern Virginia

News & Updates

Lane Closures & Traffic Alerts

Lane Closures for the Week of March 29 - April 4, 2020

Some lane closure hours along Route 7 between Reston Avenue and Jarrett Valley Drive have been temporarily extended due to decreased traffic. The project team will monitor traffic conditions and adjust lane closure hours as traffic conditions warrant. 

Crews will be performing storm pipe installation, excavation and fill operations, clearing and other construction-related activities during the daytime and overnight hours on March 29 - April 4 along eastbound and westbound Route 7, and on Reston Parkway. Please see details below.

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit along Route 7 has been temporarily reduced to 45 miles per hour in active work zones between Reston Avenue and Jarrett Valley Drive and Virginia law prohibits the use of handheld cell phones while driving through an active work zone.

During construction, drivers are asked to use caution and be alert to signs, flaggers and potential police direction in work zones. Slow-moving vehicles and equipment may be entering and exiting the road. Please see VDOT's video on navigating lane closure merges.

All work is subject to change based on weather and schedule. 

Please note that Washington Gas crews are also working along the corridor as part of the concurrent pipe replacement project
