Lovettsville Seeks Designated Truck Route

Town leaders, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and the Virginia Department of Transportation are working on two new transportation initiatives.

The town wants to reduce the maximum speed on Berlin Pike inside the town limits to 35 miles per hour and extend the 25 mph zone south of the Town Square past Germanna Drive to address safety concerns near the crosswalks at the Town Square.

The town also wants to designate a truck route that takes tractor trailers through the Town Square rather than down Loudoun and Locust streets. Mayor Bob Zoldos said many GPS systems direct drivers to take those smaller streets and then the large trucks are unable to make the turns at the end of the street.

VDOT will review the requests.
