Weekend closure to block key artery through Seven Corners
Posted by WTOP August 2, 2019
The Route 50 underpass through Seven Corners will be closed this weekend for the rehabilitation of a Wilson Boulevard bridge.
Eastbound and westbound traffic on Route 50 will be detoured onto the parallel service road and through Seven Corners’ namesake, the signalized intersections for Route 7 and three other roads, from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.
Once the closure is put into effect, crews will begin demolition of an old one-way, two-lane bridge. The new 87-foot overpass will be carefully hoisted into position above Route 50 throughout the weekend.
