STRIP 1 WEST PROJECT

STRIP 1 WEST PROJECT

Strip 1 West on Leesburg Pike (Route 7)
in Fairfax County, VA

SPID39


Project Overview:

Washington Gas’ construction activities will replace approximately 6.5 miles of a 16-inch diameter natural gas pipeline with a new 24-inch diameter steel pipeline, and could include the installation of regulator stations and the replacement of distribution mains depending on the final layout of the new corridor. Michels, an industry-leading utility contractor, is the construction contractor performing the work.

The entire scope of this project will be within VDOT right-of-way, extending from Leesburg Pike (Route 7) and Bishop Gates Way in Herndon, Virginia, to Leesburg Pike (Route 7) and Tyco Road in McLean, Virginia.

 
The Route 7 Corridor Project will improve almost seven miles of Route 7 between Reston Avenue and Jarrett Valley Drive in Fairfax County. The project will widen the road from four to six lanes, add facilities for cyclists and pedestrians, and make substantial intersection and other improvements along the corridor.
