Meeting tonight on Route 7 bridge over Dulles Toll Rd

VDOT is holding a "Pardon our Dust" meeting on the project to rebuild the Route 7 bridge over the Dulles Toll Road. The meeting is tonight, Wednesday, March 9, 6 - 8 p.m. at Colvin Run Elementary School, 1400 Trap Road, Vienna.

There are no bike/ped facilities on the bridge connecting areas to the west of Tysons with Tysons and the new Silver Line stations. The current innovative design for the bridge includes trails on each side of the road with ramp crossings that are separated from high speed traffic using bridges or underpasses. This is a great design and we strongly support the project.

From VDOT:
Staff from VDOT, Wagman Heavy Civil, Inc., and Rinker Design Associates will be on hand to discuss the project, potential traffic impacts and construction schedule.

This project will replace and widen the bridges, as well as widen the section of Route 7 from four to six lanes from Jarrett Valley Drive to just west of Tyco Road. A new 14-foot shared-use path will be added. Utility relocation starts this month, with construction beginning in early to mid-March. The project will be complete in spring 2018.
