Fort Johnston Road Name Change Set for October

Posted on August 21, 2023 at 12:16 PM by Nancy McCormick

As part of Loudoun County’s road renaming initiative, property owners along Fort Johnston Road are being notified by letter that the road’s name will officially change on October 26, 2023.  

  • The segment of Fort Johnston Road between Alysheba Drive and Leeland Orchard Road will be renamed Leeland Orchard Road. 
  • The remaining segment will be renamed Fort Star Lane. Property owners submitted name suggestions; eligible names were then circulated for a vote. The name with the most votes was “Fort Star,” which was proposed in recognition of the fort’s star-shaped, earthen construction.

The renaming follows the Board of Supervisors’ decision to inventory and review Confederate and segregationist symbols in the county. More information about the initiative is online at
