3/29/2018

Neighbors of the 7/659
Interchange Project,


The purpose of this email is to
update you on the Route 7 and Route 659 blasting news release issued to the
public on March 15, 2018 and shown below. Due to inclement weather,
blasting within the Route 7 median and blasting east of Route 659 immediately south
of the future Russell Branch Parkway and newly constructed Route 659 will
resume on or about March 30, 2018 and April 2, 2018, respectively. As a
result of the weather delays, blasting is now expected to continue on a weekly
basis through mid to late April 2018.

Loudoun County officials
announce that blasting along Route 659 (Belmont Ridge Road) will resume on or
about March 22, 2018, for the Route 7 and Route 659 interchange construction
project. Blasting will be concentrated just south of the future intersection
of Russell Branch Parkway between Gloucester Parkway and Route 7 to allow for
the construction of the northbound lanes of Belmont Ridge Road. Blasting
along Route 659 is expected to be completed in early April.


Meanwhile, blasting necessary
for grading of the Route 7 median continues in median of Route 7 and is
expected to be completed in mid-April.


Blasting is generally scheduled
to occur between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. as conditions permit. The
blasting may cause temporary road closures for brief periods, generally not
longer than 20 minutes. All closures will be managed in accordance with
Virginia Department of Transportation and Loudoun County requirements. All
blasting will comply with the Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s requirements. Electronic
message boards will be posted to advise the public of blasting.
