Loudoun County officials are celebrating the completion of another significant road project that will relieve traffic congestion: the completion and opening of two segments of Crosstrail Boulevard between Sycolin Road and Kincaid Boulevard.
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. The two road segments are scheduled to be open to traffic by the end of the week.
The opening of these segments will provide additional access to recreational facilities, Loudoun Transit’s Leesburg park and ride lot and to the new offices of Loudoun County Animal Services. The project also includes turn lane improvements along Sycolin Road and a traffic signal at the intersection, which is scheduled to be fully operational early next week. This section of Crosstrail Boulevard will also serve as an alternate route to both Battlefield Parkway and Cochran Mill Road. The total budgeted cost of the current project, Crosstrail Boulevard between Sycolin Road and Gourley Transit Drive, which was funded by the county, was approximately $19.7 million.
Construction on the final section of Crosstrail Boulevard, between Kincaid Boulevard and Russel Branch Parkway, is expected to begin soon. When the road is completed, the four-lane, divided highway will provide a new connection between Sycolin Road and Route 7.
