Next Up: Mooreview Parkway’s Missing Link

A missing link of Mooreview Parkway may soon be under construction.

The Board of Supervisors is expected in January to award a $4.38 million contract to William A. Hazel Inc. to build a four-lane extension  between Croson Lane and Old Ryan Road. The missing link fronts Moorefield Station Elementary School.

The county had earmarked $9.7 million for the work, but agreed last January with Atapco Properties to allow the developer of the nearby Westmoore neighborhood to build a portion of the planned improvements on Old Ryan Road.

Hazel was contracted by Atapco to do the Old Ryan Road work and its bid to take on the county’s portion was $700,000 below the second lowest bidder for the county contract.

Once complete, the road section will improve access to the school, as well as to the Moorefield Community Park and the Sliver Line’s Ashburn Station.
