Route 15 South Safety & Operational Study


  • The project consists of a safety and operational study of approximately 12 miles of Route 15 (James Monroe Highway) from the south corporate limit of the Town of Leesburg to the Prince William County line. The study will identify safety and traffic operational issues and present recommended solutions for consideration by the Board of Supervisors.
  • Throughout the study, public and focus group meetings will be held to capture local observations, perspectives and concerns along the corridor. 
  • The goal of the proposed improvements will be to ensure that this segment of Route 15 continues to carry local and commuter traffic safely and efficiently while preserving the unique context of the historical roadway.
  • Loudoun County’s approved Capital Improvement Program contains one project on the study corridor; the Route 15 and Braddock Road Roundabout, currently scheduled to begin design in 2024.
