  • Loudoun County is making a request to the Town of Leesburg to allow Church Street closures during courthouse construction to construct the facility's utility requirements and a pedestrian tunnel. The Leesburg Town Council will be discussing the issue as an agenda item at the work session scheduled for January 13, 2020 at Town Hall. For more information, view the full update.
  • Residents and businesses within one mile of the construction received post cards in the mail encouraging recipients to sign up for regular emails and text updates on the courthouse expansion project.
  • Loudoun County has contracted with McDonough Bolyard Peck, Inc. (MBP) to perform preconstruction surveys for property owners within 450 feet of the primary construction site in Leesburg. Two letters have been mailed to eligible property owners. If MBP does not receive a response from an eligible property owner prior to the start of construction, a preconstruction survey of their property will not take place. 
  • The new Pennington Parking Garage at the Loudoun County Courts Complex is now open. The garage has more than 700 spaces.
  • Loudoun County has awarded a contract to Costello Construction of Maryland, Inc.to build the new Courthouse. 
  • Construction will begin in late January or early February 2020 and is expected to take approximately 2.5 years.
