Riverside Parkway: Loudoun County Parkway to Lexington Drive
- This project funds the design and construction of a new four-lane, divided road segment of Riverside Parkway from Silvery Blue Terrace to Loudoun County Parkway at George Washington Boulevard, the removal of Lexington Drive on both sides of Route 7, a new Loudoun Water main, and the replacement of the existing temporary traffic signal at Loudoun County Parkway and George Washington Boulevard with a permanent signal.
- In conjunction with the planned Battlefield Parkway Interchange project, traffic flow will improve by enabling Route 7 to operate as a freeway west of Countryside Boulevard in Loudoun County.
- Planning for the completion of this missing segment of Riverside Parkway began in June of 2013.
- The project is estimated to be completed by the fall of 2021.
Current Status: December 2019
- The county’s subcontractor for the Riverside Parkway construction project, Francis O. Day Company, Inc., has completed the removal of the traffic signal at the intersection of Lexington Drive and Route 7. The installation of inlaid pavement markers on Route 7 will take place at a future date; however, there are no planned impacts to motorists on Route 7 at this time.
- A construction entrance has been established on Smith Circle (west) and is maintained with a sweeper to keep the entrance and roadway clear of debris. Motorists may experience minor delays due to flagging in this area while periodic sweeping is taking place.
- Francis O. Day Company, Inc. continues to install and maintain erosion and sediment control measures from Silvery Blue Terrace to Loudoun County Parkway. This work includes stabilizing areas that will not be disturbed for more than 30 days with temporary seeds and mulch, and the construction of four temporary sediment basins.
- A groundbreaking ceremony took place on Thursday, December 12, 2019 near the intersection of Lexington Drive and Smith Circle. Read the news release.
