Work Begins on Rt. 7 Crossover Link near Ashburn

The Virginia Department of Transportation is gearing up to extend George Washington Boulevard over Rt. 7, between Research Place on the north side and Russell Branch Parkway on the south. 

The $30.6 million project, financed with federal, state and Loudoun County money, is scheduled for completion in mid-2024.         

During construction over the next few years, there will periodic lane closings and some traffic impacts in the area of George Washington Boulevard and Research Place, and the area of Russell Branch Parkway and Waverly Court. At least one lane in each direction the roads will remain open at all times. 

Learn more and track progress at VDOT’s project webpage.

The extension of George Washington Boulevard includes a Rt. 7 overpass linking to Russel Branch Parkway.

    How did the demand for this $30 million accommodation compare to the YEARS of traffic congestion, accidents and deaths on Route 15 north of Leesburg? Were the nearby overpasses at Ashburn Village, Loudoun County Parkway or even Route 28 EVER crowded? This $30 million overpass is a nice to have convenience for the few who live or drive into this relatively small neighborhood but there already are nearby options while Route 15 north of Leesburg has no service road options and apparently nobody on the BOS dedicated to fix long term issues other than changing names of highways or putting money where “active BOS members live”. 🙂
