In accordance with the state legislation, in late December 2009 Fairfax County submitted to VDOT for review a summary of proposed revisions to the Tysons Corner area, and their effect on the road network.

Three CTIAs were conducted to determine current and future traffic conditions associated with planned densities and new developments

Route 7 Bridge over the Dulles Toll RoadThe widening of Route 7 over the Dulles Toll Road had a total project cost of approximately $44.82 million and was fully funded through NVTA and Bridge funds. The ribbon cutting ceremony was held on May 22, 2018.

The project widened Route 7 from four lanes to six lanes, approximately from just west of Jarrett Valley Drive to just west of Tyco Road, for a total length of approximately 0.4 miles. The decks of the two existing bridges over Dulles Airport Toll Road (DTR) were replaced and widened in the middle to accommodate one extra lane on each side of the bridge. A shared use path was built for pedestrians and bikes to travel in each direction.
