The first public meeting was held on July 25, 2013 to discuss current conditions in the corridor. The second meeting was held on September 18, 2013 to discuss the preliminary transit alternatives. Click here for more information about the public meetings including meeting presentations and meeting boards.
What is the Route 7 corridor, and what can it be? What transit option should we invest in to make that corridor more accessible, more desirable, and easier to travel through? Is a high-capacity transit service in order, or can improvements to local transit services meet the needs for the corridor?
The Route 7 Corridor Transit Alternatives Analysis Study will address these questions through an in-depth assessment of the travel needs of the Route 7 corridor from Tysons Corner to Alexandria. The study team will evaluate a range of transit alternatives based on local and regional objectives and evaluation criteria, including transit and roadway mobility, transit accessibility, safety, regional connectivity, development potential, environmental impacts, capital and operating costs, and potential funding sources.
What options best serve the needs of people like you who live and work along the length of the roadway, as well as those that may arrive in the coming decades?
Your Input Matters
The recommendations for the corridor will be primarily based on input from public engagement and the results of technical analysis. Any findings would be carried forward into later studies should the corridor progress to that phase.
Please review the project information provided on this website and check regularly to keep up with study progress. Your input is critical to our success. Please visit our feedback page to give us your input and ideas on the Route 7 corridor and/or to sign up for regular project update e-mails.
