Two Loudoun County transportation projects were included in the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority’s Six-Year Program, which the Authority adopted June 9.
The project to build Crosstrail Boulevard from Sycolin Road to the Dulles Greenway will receive $36.7 million. The project to widen Arcola Mills Drive—formerly Evergreen Mills Road—from Northstar Boulevard to Stone Springs Boulevard will receive $18 million. Both awards are for the full amount the county requested from the Authority.
In total, 13 Northern Virginia localities and agencies requested a total of $1.44 billion in multimodal transportation funding. The NVTA unanimously voted to allocate $539 million to fund 21 transportation projects to reduce traffic congestion in 11 jurisdictions and agencies.
“The regional collaboration and ability to look beyond jurisdictional lines is truly remarkable and a benefit to all Northern Virginians, as well as those traveling through the DC metropolitan area,” said Loudoun Chair Phyllis J. Randall (D-At Large), who also chairs the NVTA.
With the adoption of the Fiscal Year 2020-2025 Six-Year Program, together with its four previous funding programs, the NVTA is help fund 106 transportation projects in the region totaling nearly $2.5 billion.
The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority is funded by a regional sales tax. It previously also received funding from a regional hotel tax and grantor’s tax, but in 2018 the General Assembly stripped that funding to send to Metro.
