Loudoun to Resurrect, Expand Rt. 50 Task Force

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors on Jan. 21 unanimously approved a resolution to create a new Loudoun-Fairfax Route 50 Task Force.

In 2004, the board created a task force to make recommendations to guide growth around Rt. 50 in southern Loudoun, with the goal to create an attractive gateway to the county. That task force made its final report in July 2005. Fairfax County was not involved in that effort, although the task force recommended Loudoun cooperate with Fairfax.

Supervisors Tony Buffington Jr. (R-Blue Ridge) and Matthew F. Letourneau (R-Dulles) recommended the new initiative, which directs the county staff to develop a proposal for the task force. The new task force is envisioned to include representatives from Fairfax County to help tackle commuter delays between Loudoun and Fairfax.
