Join Us December 12 for the Groundbreaking of the Riverside Parkway Project

Posted on December 4, 2019 at 4:30 PM by Nancy McCormick

Loudoun County invites members of the public to attend a groundbreaking ceremony for the completion of the final segment of Riverside Parkway Thursday, December 12, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. near the intersection of Lexington Drive and Smith Circle.  

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. More information can be found at
