McLean Citizens Association Board to Discuss Route 7 Widening

The board will meet at 8 p.m. Wednesday at the McLean Community Center.

The McLean Citizens Association Board - the community's version of "town council" - will discuss several topics at its monthly board meeting Wednesday, including a letter directed to the chairman of the Commonwealth Transportation Board, Sean Connaughton, regarding the impending Route 7 widening project. 

The state is currently in the design phase of widening a portion of Route 7 from four lanes to six lanes.

"The McLean Citizens Association (MCA) supports the need for a comprehensive integrated analysis of all projects and studies related to the Route 7 corridor, including mass-transit alternatives, in order to address concerns about congestion, pollution, and economic loss in the long-term.  The MCA believes that coordination and integration among all of these projects is the only way toward an effective and efficient transportation solution in the Route 7 corridor that will enhance the quality of life of those who live and commute along it every day," MCA President Sally Horn writes in a draft version of the letter.

In other business, the MCA board will:

  • Discuss details of a planned town hall meeting on Jan. 2 with Virginia state legislators
  • Receive an update on Fairfax Water
  • Discuss input to the Fairfax County budget process

A full copy of the board's agenda is available above this article. The board will convene at 8 p.m. in the McLean Community Center.
