The Loudoun Board of Supervisors asked again, but the answer was the same.
The Town Council on Monday night stood by its previously stated position opposing the removal of a barricade at the end of Kincaid Boulevard. The road is now linked with a section of Crosstrail Boulevard that leads to Philip A. Bolen Park and a commuter parking lot.
Susan Glass, a program manager with the county’s Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure, told the council that county supervisors last fall asked the staff to gauge the town’s interest in opening the connection. She noted that some motorists already skirt the barrier to access the road.
Council members restated their plan to keep the road closed until the entire link of Crosstrail Boulevard—from Sycolin Road to the Village at Leesburg—is completed. That might not happen until after 2020. Opening the connection earlier would drive large volumes of cut-through traffic into the neighborhood, council members said.
The council also will look at ways to install a less permeable barrier—concrete Jersey walls if necessary—to prevent cars from getting through.
