Battlefield Parkway Link to Open Monday

The last segment of Battlefield Parkway, between South King Street and Evergreen Mill Road, will open to traffic Monday, April 16. Weather permitting, the new roadway section will open between 2-3 p.m. At the same time, eastbound traffic between Evergreen Mill Road and the Dulles Greenway will be shifted onto the new eastbound lanes.

Initially, only one lane in each direction between South King Street and Evergreen Mill Road will be open to traffic. All construction, including final paving, sidewalk, and shared-use path, will be completed by early June.

Masons Lane east of Gleedsville Road will be closed for approximately two weeks, beginning Monday, April 16, for reconstruction. Drivers should follow detour signs. During this time, Masons Lane will be limited to local traffic. All through-traffic will be routed onto the new section of Battlefield Parkway.

Once the intersection at Masons Lane and Battlefield Parkway is reopened, traffic at that intersection will be limited to right-in and right-out movements only. There will be no access to Masons Lane from westbound Battlefield Parkway.

The total budget for the project was $15.8 million, with $12.75 million provided by VDOT. The remaining funding was provided by the Town of Leesburg, Loudoun County, and the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority. The right-of-way for Battlefield Parkway was donated to the Town of Leesburg by the developers of the Meadowbrook Farm development.
