Major Delays Expected Today on Route 7/15 Bypass in Leesburg

Don't forget... major delays -- up to 20 minutes -- expected today, Sunday, Sept. 12, on the Route 7/15 Bypass in Leesburg while Dominion Virginia Power crews continue pulling wires across roadways for a new power line. The work is expected to start this morning at 6 a.m. and last all day until 8 p.m.

Traffic stops will occur on the east and westbound lanes of the Route 7/15 Bypass, just west of Sycolin Road. Traffic stops will also occur on Sycolin Road at the Route 7/15 Bypass. Motorists heading to Leesburg can use Battlefield Parkway to avoid major delays.

The work is part of Dominion Virginia Power’s construction of a 12-mile, high-voltage power line from a new substation northwest of Hamilton, near the intersection of Berlin Turnpike and Route 7, to a substation off Cochran Mill Road east of Leesburg.
