Rt. 7 Night Closures Continue for Work on Rt. 7/659 Interchange

Loudoun County transportation officials have announced that nighttime road closures and lane closures on Route 7 will continue into November to accommodate work on the Route 7/659 (Belmont Ridge Road) interchange project.

In addition, the night work may also include single lane closures on north and southbound Belmont Ridge Road to allow for pavement surfacing. The extended time frame for the roadwork from the end of October into November is a direct result of the rainy weather that has limited work activity since August.  
In order to complete the work before the Thanksgiving holiday, the contractor will be working six nights per week, Sunday through Friday night/Saturday morning. As previously announced, nighttime work will begin as early as 9 p.m. for Route 7 eastbound and 10 p.m. for Route 7 westbound, including weekends, to allow for longer work periods. Night work on Route 659 will begin as early as 9 p.m.  All nighttime work will conclude prior to peak morning traffic as coordinated and approved by the Virginia Department of Transportation. ​
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. ​
More information, including maps of the planned lane closures and detour routes, is online at  ​
Questions about the project can be emailed to the Loudoun County Department of Transportation & Capital Infrastructure at​
