Right of Way/Right of Entry
Right of Way
Property owners along Route 7 will be informed of the exact location of any temporary or permanent easements or right of way necessary to build the project during the right of way acquisition process and prior to construction on their parcels. Right of way discussions with property owners will begin during the first half of 2019 and continue into 2021. Information about right of way and easement purchase is discussed in VDOT’s brochure, “Right of Way and Utilities: A Guide for Property Owners and Tenants.”
Permission to Enter for Parcel Assessment
If you own property along Route 7 between Reston Avenue and Jarrett Valley Drive, please be on the lookout for a "permission to enter" letter in your mailbox in coming months (here's an example). It will ask that you respond by phone, email or returning a self-addressed stamped reply.
Your timely response is important, as it helps keep right-of-way offers, easements needed for the project as well as construction work on track.
