Loudoun County officials are celebrating the completion of another significant road project that will relieve traffic congestion: the completion of the missing link of Claiborne Parkway between Croson Lane and Ryan Road.
The project, which was managed by Loudoun County, constructed approximately 4,000 feet of a four-lane, median-divided roadway with a shared use path on one side of the road and a sidewalk on the other. There are also two traffic signals associated with the project.
On Wednesday, members of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors joined with other officials, Loudoun County government staff, members of the project team and members of the community for a ceremonial ribbon cutting.
Claiborne Parkway is a north/south regional roadway, extending from Route 7 to Loudoun County Parkway. The new road segment, which is scheduled to open to traffic following the ribbon cutting ceremony, will allow motorists to travel directly to community facilities such as schools and Inova Hospital in Lansdowne. The new roadway will also relieve traffic on Belmont Ridge Road and other area roadways and provide alternate access to the Dulles South area in conjunction with the completion of Loudoun County Parkway and Route 606 projects.
Construction on the project began in spring 2017. The total cost of the project was approximately $10.8 million.
