Route 7 West Safety and Operational Study


  • The project consists of a safety and operational study of approximately 7 miles of Route 7 from Route 690 (Hillsboro Road) to the Clarke County line. The study will identify safety and traffic operational issues and present recommended solutions for consideration by the Board of Supervisors. 
  • The goal of the study is to ensure that this segment of Route 7 continues to carry local and commuter traffic safely and efficiently. It will examine existing conditions, current traffic counts, crash history and consider projected future traffic volumes. These factors, combined with public involvement, will be used to identify recommended improvements that will be presented to the Board of Supervisors in fall 2024.
  • Throughout the study, public input and focus group meetings will be held to engage the comunity. The initial focus group meeting was held on September 28, 2023 and the initial public input meeting will be held in January 2024. The focus group meeting materials are available under the Meeting Documents section below and the public input documents will be posted prior to the meeting.
