More on Loudoun Road Funding

Today's Washington Post features an article about the $53 million approved by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority for Loudoun County road and transit projects over the next two years. The projects were part of the NVTA's $392 million regional transportation spending
plan that will use taxing power granted from the state General Assembly.

Loudoun's projects include:
- An interchange at Edwards Ferry Road and the Route 15 Bypass in Leesburg
- The widening of Route 15 in southern Leesburg
- An interchange at Route 7 and Belmont Ridge Road
- Land acquisition for a park-and-ride lot in Sterling

The funding isn't a done deal though. Loudoun County government and a group of anti-tax activists are challenging NVTA's right to raise taxes in a case that was brought before the Virginia Supreme Court last week.
