Ground Broken for Another Route 7 Project in Loudoun County

Loudoun County officials are celebrating the start of another significant road project. Ground was broken today for the Route 7/Ashburn Village Boulevard interchange.
The project provides for construction of an interchange at the intersection of Route 7 and Ashburn Village Boulevard, which will eliminate the existing traffic signal and help ease traffic congestion along Route 7 – one of the county's top transportation priorities.
Miller and Smith, the developer of One Loudoun, the mixed-use community located at Route 7 and the Loudoun County Parkway, is managing construction of the project. Loudoun County is contributing $5 million toward the cost of the interchange. The project is expected to be completed in August 2018.
The Ashburn Village Boulevard interchange is part of a larger effort to transform Route 7 into a limited access road with no traffic signals between Countryside Boulevard in the Sterling/Potomac Falls area and East Market Street in Leesburg. Ground was broken earlier this month on a project managed by Loudoun County that will create an interchange at Route 7 and Route 659 (Belmont Ridge Road).
