ENVISION ROUTE 7
Envision a high quality transit option for the Route 7 corridor that accommodates growth, connects people and businesses to economic opportunity and improves regional mobility.
Route 7 in Northern Virginia is a historic and critical corridor in the region, providing regional transportation connectivity among communities, commercial centers, places of worship, downtowns, major employment areas, service centers, and schools, and importantly providing access to Metrorail. It serves the needs of the residents and businesses of the region, making connections to the larger regional network and to points beyond the areas surrounding the roadway.
This year NVTC recommended Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), which is expected to attract 9,500 new daily transit riders to Route 7. BRT is proposed to run 11 miles, mostly in a dedicated lane, between the Spring Hill Metrorail Station in and the Mark Center, leaving Route 7 briefly to connect to the East Falls Church Metrorail Station. This regional solution will expand travel options and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion.
