Limited Access Control Changes Under Review for Route 7/690 Interchange Project

Posted on March 17, 2021 at 10:40 AM by Heidi Kellum

A limited access control change along Route 7 for the Route 7/690 Interchange project has been submitted to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) for review and is anticipated to be reviewed and approved by the Commonwealth Transportation Board in Spring 2021. A limited access road is a highway or arterial road for high-speed traffic with limited or no access to adjacent property. 

In the next quarter, DTCI’s design consultant will continue preparation of the design plans and plats, and coordination with utility providers. Land acquisition, estimated for completion in summer 2022, is approximately 15% complete.

In the fall of 2022, based on the appropriation timing, VDOT Smart Scale funding for the project and utility relocation is anticipated to begin. 

This project funds the design, right-of-way acquisition, and construction of an interchange at Route 7 and Route 690 in Purcellville, located approximately two miles west of the Route 7/Berlin Turnpike interchange and approximately two miles east of the Route 7 and Business Route 7 interchange. The proposed Route 7/Route 690 interchange will provide additional connectivity to the roadway network around Purcellville, reduce traffic in downtown Purcellville and on Route 287, and provide a more direct route to destinations north and northeast of Route 7, including Woodgrove High School and Mountain View Elementary.

The Route 7/690 Interchange project is in the design phase. Construction of the proposed interchange is anticipated to begin in 2023 and will take an estimated 36-48 months to complete.
