Public Forum Set on Evergreen Mills Road Safety Audit

The Loudoun County staff is planning a July 31 open house to update the public on the status of the safety audit of Evergreen Mills Road and Watson Road.

The study identified 10 “hot spot” intersections that have been crash-prone and proposed $1.2 million in short-term improvements to improve safety.

The meeting will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Heritage High School in Leesburg. A brief presentation is scheduled for 6:45 p.m.

The Board of Supervisors authorized funding for the safety audit in December following a series of severe crashes, including fatalities. The audit includes an engineering analysis of existing roadway and safety conditions along approximately 11.2 miles of Evergreen Mills Road and 4.3 miles of Watson Road.

During the session, representatives from the Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure and the county’s transportation engineering consultant will present the preliminary findings of the safety audit and recommended improvements to address existing safety problems. The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to review the recommendations at its July 19 meeting.
