Loudoun County will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Davis Drive extension Thursday, July 15, 2021, at 3:00 p.m. The ceremony was originally scheduled for July 1, but was postponed due to inclement weather. The extension of Davis Drive completes a missing link in Loudoun County’s road network by providing a roadway connection between Old Ox Road (Route 606) and South Sterling Boulevard (Route 846). Previously, vehicles traveling between these roadways had to use either Route 28 or Shaw Road.
The event will take place beside Davis Drive near Old Ox Road in the vicinity of 22900 Platform Plaza. To access the site, approach Davis Drive from Sterling Boulevard and turn south. Then follow Davis Drive to the marked-off area designated for the ribbon cutting ceremony near Old Ox Road.
The Davis Drive project constructed a four-lane, undivided roadway between Old Ox Road and the existing road that previously terminated at Transdulles Plaza. There is 6-foot sidewalk on the east side of the road and a 10-foot shared use path on the west side of the road. The developer of Waterside North designed the improvements, provided right-of-way and easements, and funded the construction. This project completes a major connection and north-south alternative to Route 28, called for in the Countywide Transportation Plan.
