Gloucester Parkway, the link between Loudoun County Parkway and Pacific Boulevard, is expected to be open Thursday, August 4.
The parkway is one of several the county plans to reduce congestion on Waxpool Road and provide east-west alternatives to the Dulles Greenway. Gloucester Parkway now provides a link between Loudoun County Parkway and Route 28.
The parkway has been on the county’s wishlist since a 2012 study of the traffic in Eastern Loudoun. The $31 million project was built with the help of a proffered cash contribution from the Kincora developer.
“Because the Gloucester Parkway intersection is so important to Loudoun commuters, the county government, with state and private developers and land owners, worked collaboratively to accelerate construction of this critically important project,” said Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Chair Phyllis J. Randall. “This serves as an example of how public/private partnerships can meet Loudoun’s needs.”
The project consists of 0.8 miles of a four-lane divided highway; a new bridge over Broad Run; intersection improvements at Loudoun County Parkway and Pacific Boulevard; trail and sidewalk improvements; and traffic signals at two intersections.
