Aerial view of project
Loudoun County officials announce upcoming planned night closures to set structural steel for the future interchange at the intersection of Route 7 (Harry Byrd Highway) and Route 659 (Belmont Ridge Road).  The work will occur in two phases with the first phase scheduled to begin the night of Monday, March 27, 2017. The impacts of the two phases are as follows:

Phase 1: Route 7 westbound single-lane closures are set to begin at 10:00 p.m., on or about Monday, March 27, 2017, weather permitting.  During Phase 1, the Route 7 eastbound left turn lanes to Route 659 north and left through lane will be closed, beginning at 10:00 p.m.  Complete closures of Route 7 and Route 659 will occur at 20-minute intervals between 12:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. Law enforcement personnel will be onsite directing traffic throughout the work. During the 20-minute interval closures, Route 659 northbound and southbound will be closed onto Route 7 westbound. Turning movements throughout the night work will be subject to the direction of law enforcement personnel.  Phase 1 night work and road closures will occur Monday through Friday nights and are expected to take 11 working days, weather permitting, with planned completion of Phase 1 on or about April 10, 2017.

Phase 2: Route 7 eastbound single lane closures are set to begin at 10:00 p.m. immediately following completion of Phase 1 night work and road closures on or about April 11, 2017.  During Phase 2, the Route 7 eastbound left turn lanes onto Route 659 north and the Route 7 eastbound left and center through lanes will be closed, beginning at 10:00 p.m.  Route 7 and Route 659 closures will occur at 20-minute intervals between 12:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m.  Phase 2 night work and road closures will occur Monday through Friday nights and are expected to take six working days from the completion of Phase 1, weather permitting, with planned completion of Phase 2 on or about April 20, 2017.

In advance of the start of Phase 1, electronic message boards will be posted on or about March 17, 2017, to advise the public of night work. The signs will remain in place through the completion of Phase 2.  Loudoun County officials ask that motorists plan ahead to take alternate routes to avoid this area during the affected times.                                                                                                                                 
During the noted period for night work, daytime construction activities will continue and include intermittent lane closures as necessary.  Daytime lane closures are expected to continue into June 2017.  Updates and notices for the Route 7/659 Interchange project construction phase can be found at www.loudoun.gov/route7-659.  Questions about the project may be directed to the Loudoun County Department of Transportation & Capital Infrastructure by email
