Even More Construction... Today It's Pacific Boulevard

More news about roads in Loudoun County, this time it's about construction on Pacific Boulevard.

According to today's Leesburg Today newspaper, there was a ceremony this morning where "elected representatives, county staff, representatives of the Virginia Department of Transportation and community members gathered to break ground on another key transportation project in eastern Loudoun. This morning marked the kick off of the construction of Pacific Boulevard between Autoworld Way and Severn Way, west of Rt. 28, a segment of road many have called an important part of improving traffic flow on the soon-to-be limited access highway."

Leesburg Today even has some video.

The paper added, that once complete, "the road will connect the Dulles 28 Centre area to Severn Way, providing two two-lane separated bridges over the W&OD trail and a two-lane bridge over Cabin Branch. There will also be a new parking area for the W&OD trail as part of a proffer from the Paragon Park development, which will front Rt. 28. The current parking area must be closed when the Nokes Boulevard interchange is opened.The entire cost of the project, for design, construction, right-of-way procurement and utilities, is $26.7 million. The road is expected to be open to commuters and residents by August 2010."
