Crews constructing a new segment of Northstar Boulevard from Route 50 to Tall Cedars Parkway in Aldie are currently clearing the project area of vegetation and establishing erosion and sediment controls. In addition to roadway construction, this project includes the construction of a new signalized intersection on Route 50, located near the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Arcola maintenance area headquarters. Earthwork activities in the project area will be ongoing through winter 2022.
Over the next several weeks, dry utility coordination with vendors will continue and work to install a new 24” water line to replace an existing water line that’s currently in the way of the new road will begin. Work to install rebar for support of the bridge structure that will cross the south fork of Broad Run is currently estimated to begin February 2022, weather permitting.
When completed, this segment of Northstar Boulevard will provide an alternative north/south connection to Route 50, addressing traffic congestion in the corridor and improving capacity and safety on existing roadway networks within the Dulles South area. Construction is expected to be completed by winter 2024.
Northstar Boulevard is part of the North/South Corridor of Statewide Significance as described in the Virginia Transportation Plan (VTrans), addressing congestion on parallel north/south routes between I-95 and Dulles International Airport and connecting travelers to activity centers in Loudoun County and beyond. The county is also developing another segment of Northstar Boulevard from Evergreen Mills Road (formerly Shreveport Drive) to Route 50, which will join this segment with the existing roadway in the Brambleton area. Construction of this segment is expected to begin in late 2022.
