As a part of the Riverside Parkway project, new traffic signal work is scheduled to begin at the intersection of Loudoun County Parkway and George Washington Boulevard, on November 30, 2020, weather permitting. This work will be conducted during the day, Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for an approximate duration of five days ending the week of December 6, 2020. The work will include removing the existing temporary traffic signals and installing four (4) new traffic signal poles, mast arms, signal heads, pedestrian poles and other related work necessary for this signalized intersection.
Flagging operations, lane closures and temporary traffic stoppages will be needed to safely install the mast arms and poles over traffic. Each traffic stoppage will last for approximately 5 minutes. Drivers should use extra caution when traveling through this area and follow all directions from the posted signs, Loudoun County Sheriff’s deputies and road crews. Electronic Message Boards will also be placed at the intersection a minimum of three (3) days prior to construction beginning to alert the driving public.
This project will extend Riverside Parkway from Silvery Blue Terrace to Loudoun County Parkway at George Washington Boulevard. The scope of work includes the construction of a new four-lane, divided road segment, the removal of Lexington Drive on both sides of Route 7, a new Loudoun Water main, and the replacement of the existing temporary traffic signal at Loudoun County Parkway and George Washington Boulevard with a permanent signal.
The completion of Riverside Parkway, in conjunction with the planned Battlefield Parkway Interchange project, will improve traffic flow and will allow Route 7 to operate as a freeway west of Countryside Boulevard in Loudoun County.
Construction of this segment of Riverside Parkway is expected to be completed by the fall of 2021.
