Loudoun County officials announce that blasting for the Route 7 (Harry Byrd Highway) and Route 659 (Belmont Ridge Road) interchange construction project will begin on or about Feb. 12, and continue weekly for approximately two months. The blasting will occur within the median of Route 7.  


Blasting is generally scheduled to occur between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. as conditions permit.

The blasting may cause temporary road closures for brief periods, generally not longer than 20 minutes. All closures will be managed in accordance with Virginia Department of Transportation and Loudoun County requirements. All blasting will comply with the Loudoun County Fire Marshal's requirements. Electronic message boards will be posted to advise the public of blasting.
