Ground is Broken on "Most Difficult Portion" of Atlantic Boulevard

From the Leesburg Today comes coverage of the ground breaking for construction of a portion of Atlantic Boulevard.

Called the most difficult portion of Atlantic Boulevard, and therefore one that took the longest to reach construction, the link of the Rt. 28 parallel road between Magnolia Road and Church Road broke ground today. Once it is complete it will provide continuous travel along Atlantic Boulevard from Sterling Boulevard to Rt. 7.

Speaking before the ground breaking, County Chairman Scott K. York (I-At Large) said once the link is complete, commuters and residents would be able to make a complete loop, taking Atlantic Boulevard from Rt. 7 down to the Center for Innovative Technology near the Fairfax County border, crossing over Rt. 28 and heading back up Pacific Boulevard. All without getting on Rt. 28.

"It took a lot of time and a lot of dollars to get us to this point," York said.
