Virginia 7 Business travels Main Street, the original alignment of Virginia 7, 3.05 miles through the city of Berryville. The route was formed in the early 1970s when Virginia 7 shifted to its four-lane bypass to the north.
Note the use of Alexandria as a control point for Virginia 7 east, and Charles Town for the bypass route connection with U.S. 340 leading north. Photos taken 07/16/05.
Virginia 7 Business (Main Street) travels through the suburban west side of Berryville before meeting U.S. 340 (Buckmarsh Street) in downtown. US. 340 enters Berryville from White Post and Boyce to the southwest. Photo taken 07/16/05.
Virginia 7 upgrades to limited access standards on the bypass of Berryville. A diamond interchange joins the freeway with U.S. 340 (Lord Fairfax Highway) on the outside of town. U.S. 340 heads four miles north into West Virginia, en route to Charlest Town, Harpers Ferry, and ultimately Frederick, Maryland. Photo taken 07/16/05.
