Loudoun County officials are celebrating the completion of another significant missing link: Claiborne Parkway between Croson Lane and Ryan Road.
The project, which was managed by Loudoun County, constructed approximately 4,000 feet of a four-lane, median-divided roadway with a shared use path on one side of the road and a sidewalk on the other. There are also two traffic signals connected to the project.
The walking and biking trail connects to the paved trail bordering Loudoun Valley Estates.
County supervisors joined other officials, Loudoun County government staff, members of the project team and members of the community for a ceremonial ribbon cutting today.
Claiborne Parkway is a regional roadway running north and south, connecting to Rt. 7 and Loudoun County Parkway. The new road segment will allow motorists to travel directly to community facilities such as schools and Inova Hospital in Lansdowne. The new roadway is also intended to relieve traffic on Belmont Ridge Road and other area roadways and provide alternate access to the Dulles South area in conjunction with the completion of Loudoun County Parkway and Route 606 projects.
