Loudoun County Officials Praise NVTA Adoption of $1.285 Billion Six Year Transportation Program

Loudoun County officials are applauding the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority's adoption of its first six-year transportation program, which includes dozens of projects designed to reduce traffic congestion throughout the region. 


"It is an honor to be part of this historic milestone for the Authority," said Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Chair Phyllis J. Randall, who also serves as vice chairman of the NVTA. "The 44 projects in our first Six Year Program will deliver major improvements throughout the region that will not just relieve congestion but improve the quality of life for all Northern Virginians."


Randall said that Loudoun County projects are receiving $508.7 million, which is approximately 21 percent of the available funds in the six-year program. The Loudoun projects are: 

  • Dulles West Boulevard Widening: Loudoun County Parkway to Northstar Boulevard 
  • Evergreen Mills Road Intersection Realignments: Watson Road and Reservoir Road
  • Northstar Boulevard: Shreveport Drive to Tall Cedars Parkway
  • Prentice Drive Extension: Lockridge Road to Shellhorn Road
  • Route 9 Traffic Calming 
  • Route 15 Bypass Widening: Battlefield Parkway to Montresor Road
  • Route 28 Northbound Widening: Between Dulles Toll Road and Sterling Boulevard 
  • Shellhorn Road Extension: Loudoun County Parkway to Randolph Drive

Leading up to the adoption of the Fiscal Year 2018-2023 Six Year Program, the NVTA hosted a variety of public meetings and forums to gather feedback from Northern Virginians on the candidate projects, receiving more than 1,200 comments during the public comment period.


Through previous funding programs and with the newly adopted NVTA Six Year Program, the regional transportation planning, programming and funding body is now funding 122 regionally significant, multimodal transportation projects, totaling more than $1.975 billion in transportation investments in Northern Virginia.
