Route 7 is one of the most traveled routes in the Capital District. Connecting Schenectady to Troy and parts in between. West of Schenectady, Route 7 is mostly a two lane road, which soon doubles when Route 7 is shared with Interstate 890, and then onto its own four lane highway.

In Albany County, Route 7 continues as a four lane roadway with a center turn lane. Once in Latham, Route 7 joins Interstate 87, the Northway, briefly before traversing onto its own four lane freeway, locally known as "Alternate Route Seven". The Route 7 Freeway provides a vital connection for the Northway for Troy.

Once in Troy, Route 7 then returns to a four lane roadway through the heart of one of the area's most heavy arteries. After its journey through Troy, Route 7 then returns to its two lane road for a trip to the Green Mountain State of Vermont.
