Current Status: November 2021 

  • On October 5, 2021, Church Street from Market to Cornwall Streets was closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic for planned tunnel construction and utility work. The closure is expected to last approximately nine months. 
  • On November 8, 2021, storm water utility work is scheduled to begin on North Street near the Courthouse. During the construction, traffic will continue in a single lane on North Street between Harrison Street and Church Street. Drivers should use extra caution when traveling through this area and follow all directions from the posted signs and road crews. The work is currently estimated to last until November 19, 2021.
  • Along Church Street, crews have begun sidewalk demolition and utility work. Temporary utility relocation work by Dominion Power, Comcast, and Verizon is complete.
  • On the south side of the building, crews have begun utility work and the installation of exterior brick veneer. 
  • On the inside of the building, crews continue to install interior walls, door frames, and to rough-in electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems on all floors. Interior masonry and framing work are nearing completion. 
  • Over the next several weeks, crews will complete most of the exterior framing and sheathing work and begin preparations for roof installation.
  • Visitors to the Loudoun County Courthouse may park for free at the Pennington Garage and Pennington Lot, which are located approximately two blocks away off of Church Street NE in Leesburg. Shuttle service from the Pennington Garage and Pennington Lot to the courthouse will run approximately every ten minutes, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. A walking path between the parking areas and the courthouse will be maintained throughout the duration of construction. View parking details and a map of the shuttle route and walking path in this flyer (PDF)
