Almost 7 miles of Route 7 is slated for widening from Tysons to Reston Avenue. Construction is currently scheduled to begin in late 2018/early 2019 and last for about 6 years. While it is expected that planned improvements will increase capacity on Route 7, some Great Falls residents have expressed concern that traffic congestion on Georgetown Pike could increase during construction. GFCA has been discussing this and other issues with VDOT.
The public is invited to attend GFCA's November TownHall meeting on Tuesday, November 14 at 7:00 PM at Great Falls Library, 9830 Georgetown Pike. William Dunn, Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Project Manager for the Route 7 Corridor Improvements Project, and other VDOT staff will be speaking on major changes begin planned.
As the last Design Public Hearing was in November 2016, the upcoming TownHall meeting is your opportunity to hear about changes to the plans that have made over the last year, the updated schedule, construction approach, and find out how the project may impact you and your neighborhood.
Also at this TownHall, GFCA members will be asked to vote on proposed changes to the association's Bylaws. While only GFCA members may vote on the Bylaws, the public is encouraged to attend the meeting and participate in the Route 7 discussion. We look forward to seeing you!
