Loudoun County is hosting an online public comment period to gain input from the public on the Belmont Ridge Road Corridor Safety and Operational Study. This is the second phase of a multimodal operational and safety study of approximately 2.6 miles of Belmont Ridge Road (Route 659) from Northstar Boulevard to Evergreen Mills Road. The comment period begins Friday, April 7, 2023, and will be open through Friday, April 21, 2023, to allow members of the public to watch a recorded presentation and submit a comment about the study at loudoun.gov/belmontridgeroadstudy.
This corridor study is being conducted in two phases. In fall 2022, the Phase 1 portion of the study completed an operational and safety analysis to review existing traffic conditions along Belmont Ridge Road. The study also examined pedestrian and bicycle accommodations. Phase 1 identified short-and mid-term improvements on the corridor.
Phase 2 analyzes future traffic conditions and identifies long-term improvements. The purpose of the April 2023 public comment period is to present the findings from Phase 2 of the study and to receive input from the public on the long-term recommendations.
The public comments and recommendations for both Phase 1 and Phase 2 are scheduled to be presented to the Board of Supervisors in the summer of 2023.
