Upcoming Lane Closures & Traffic Alerts

Lane Closures for the Week of June 1-5, 2020

Crews will be performing storm pipe installation, excavation and fill operations, clearing and other construction-related activities on June 1-5 along eastbound and westbound Route 7 and on Reston Parkway. Please see details below.

Utility relocation work and other construction activities have begun in the Colvin Run and Difficult Run area.

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
