Loudoun County is hosting an online meeting to gain input from the public on the Route 7 corridor study on Monday, July 12, 2021, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. The limits of the draft study, completed in February 2021, were from Route 28 to the Fairfax County line. The public meeting will examine current safety and traffic operations as well as travel forecasting and traffic operations for proposed future alternatives to the existing conditions on the Route 7 corridor. Members of the public are invited to join the virtual meeting to learn about the proposed alternatives and areas along the corridor that need attention and to ask questions about the corridor.
Login information and meeting materials are available for review at loudoun.gov/route7corridorstudy and loudoun.gov/remoteparticipation. Meeting materials will include detailed corridor alternatives and speaker sign-up and comment forms. Members of the public must sign up in advance by 12:00 p.m., Friday, July 9, 2021, to ask questions during the meeting. Online participants may also send questions to the project team as chat messages, which will be answered during the meeting as time allows.
The draft study, titled “Route 7 Concept Study: Traffic Operations and Safety Report,”(PDF) examined existing and projected future conditions along Route 7 in Loudoun County, between Dranesville Road (Route 228) at the Fairfax County line to the Route 28 interchange, approximately 4.25 miles. The study included an evaluation of the history of reported crashes occurring during recent years, an analysis of traffic operations along the corridor under existing conditions, travel demand forecasts, and an analysis of traffic operations.
