Loudoun is in the running for state money to connect Westwind Drive from Loudoun County Parkway to Old Ox Road, and Supervisor Ron A. Meyer Jr. (R-Broad Run) is now offering to drive Loudouners to a public hearing to argue for it.
The connection, Meyer said, would provide another Dulles Greenway alternative as tolls are set to go up again. Westwind Drive is also expected to relieve traffic on Waxpool Road, providing a connection to Rt. 28 from Broadlands.
The project is competing for funding with other projects around the state.
A Commonwealth Transportation Board public hearing will be held Wednesday, May 3 at the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Northern Virginia District Office in Fairfax. Meyer has offered to drive anyone who would like to go make the case for Loudoun, renting vans if necessary.
Riders will meet at 5 p.m. at the Aloft Dulles Airport North hotel at 22390 Flagstaff Plaza, Ashburn for a 45-minute ride. The department of transportation’s Northern Virginia district office is at 4975 Alliance Drive in Fairfax.
