Loudoun County officials announce upcoming planned nighttime lanes closures and detours to accommodate work on the Route 7/659 (Belmont Ridge Road) interchange project. The work is scheduled to begin the night of August 8, 2018, and continue through late October 2018, weather permitting.
During this time, motorists will be subject to single- and double-lane closures to allow for asphalt mill and pavement operations. Additionally, road closures and detours to allow for the installation of storm water crossings on eastbound and westbound Route 7 will occur. Nighttime work will begin as early as 9:00 p.m. for Route 7 eastbound and 10:00 p.m. for Route 7 westbound, including weekends, to allow for longer work durations. All nighttime work will conclude prior to peak morning traffic as coordinated and approved by the Virginia Department of Transportation.
Overall project daytime construction activities will be ongoing through this period including work on Route 659 (Belmont Ridge Road). In advance of nighttime work, electronic message boards will be posted prior to each planned lane and road closure.
Motorists are encouraged to use caution in construction zones and along the detour routes throughout the duration of the project. The Route 7 road closures and detours will be performed in three phases:
