Route 7 over Dulles Toll Road Bridge Demolition Begins Tonight
Noise will accompany breaking of concrete on original overpass until late August


TYSONS – Starting tonight, residents and businesses in the area of the Route 7/Dulles Toll Road interchange can expect noise to accompany concrete breaking as part of the remaining demolition of the original Route 7 overpass, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The Fairfax County Department of Planning and Zoning has granted a noise waiver effective until 7 a.m. August 30 in which concrete breaking is allowed to occur during the times listed below:

  • Sunday: 9 a.m. – 11 p.m.
  • Monday: 7 a.m. – 11 p.m.
  • Tuesday: 7 a.m. – 11 p.m.
  • Wednesday: 7 a.m. – 11 p.m.
  • Thursday: 7 a.m. – 11 p.m.
  • Friday: 7 a.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.

Noise levels will be monitored at all times.

Last month, Route 7 traffic was fully shifted onto the rehabilitated and widened bridges over the Dulles Toll Road (pictured).

Wagman Heavy Civil, Incorporated of York, Pennsylvania is the contractor for the project, which is scheduled for completion in spring 2018.
