Expect Major Delays on Market Street Near Battlefield Parkway in Leesburg

Tomorrow and Monday (Sept. 26-27), motorists can expect major delays on Market Street (Route 7 Business) near Battlefield Parkway in Leesburg while Dominion Virginia Power crews continue pulling wires across the roads for a new power line.

Traffic will be stopped for up to 20 minutes at a time on Sunday from 6:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. just west of Battlefield Parkway and on Monday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the intersection of Battlefield Parkway and Market Street.

State Police and VDOT will monitor traffic, and will temporarily suspend stoppages to relieve backups should they become significant.

The work is part of Dominion Virginia Power’s construction of a 12-mile, high-voltage power line from a new substation northwest of Hamilton, near the intersection of Berlin Turnpike and Route 7, to a substation off Cochran Mill Road east of Leesburg. The project requires crews to string electric lines along about nine miles of VDOT roads, crossing them a total of 15 times.
