Waxpool Widening Project Underway and Includes Signal At Ashburn Village

The Ashburn Patch reported this week that a "project to widen a stretch of Waxpool Road in Ashburn and place a traffic signal at Waxpool and Ashburn Village Boulevard kicked off about a week ago."

The nearly $4.6 million project includes widening Waxpool to four lanes from Faulkner Parkway to Unbridled Way as well as the signal at Ashburn Village Boulevard.

Commuters heading to and from the Dulles Greenway pass through the intersection daily, and once Metro’s Silver Line reaches Ashburn, the numbers can be expected to increase. 

It was reported that the traffic signal should be in place sometime next summer. Patch editor Dusty Smith's article added that developers and the state each covered about $1.5 million of the costs, with gas tax revenues from the county’s transportation fund covering about the same. Another $35,000 listed as a gift/contribution rounded out the revenues for the project.
