VDOT Woods Road Phase II Project Underway: Turn Lanes on Evergreen Mills Road

Posted to Evergreen Mills Road and Watson Road Safety Audit by Heather Smith

Improvements at The Woods Road set for summer 2020 completion
As of July 30, 2019, work has begun on new turn lanes to improve safety and operations at the intersection of Evergreen Mills Road and The Woods Road, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
When work is complete, drivers on northbound Evergreen Mills Road will have a new left turn lane to access The Woods Road, while southbound drivers will have a new right turn lane.
Drivers traveling through the intersection can expect one lane of alternating traffic via flagging Mondays through Fridays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day.

In 2016, improvements were made to pave the gravel portion of The Woods Road, realign the road from just east of Understory Way to Evergreen Mills Road, and relocate the intersection at Evergreen Mills Road about 1,000 feet north to its current location. The road now includes two ten-foot-wide travel lanes and five-foot-wide paved shoulders for cyclists.

The $2.5 million turn lane improvements are being financed with federal, state and Loudoun County funds. The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2020.

Evergreen Mills Road averages up to 9,300 vehicles a day at the intersection, and The Woods Road averages 280 vehicles a day.
