Loudoun County Parkway Widening

According to today's "Leesburg Today," the long-awaited widening of the section of Loudoun County Parkway in front of Redskins Park, where drivers are forced to slow from 45 miles per hour to 25 miles per hour at Gloucester Parkway, might be within reach.

The paper reports that Supervisors Monday voted to direct staff to enter into negotiations with Beaumeade Associates, who submitted a Public-Private Transportation Act proposal to widen the road segment from two lanes to four lanes. Per the partnership, the county would use cash proffers and previously approved funds to pay for the construction and then Beaumeade Associates would reimburse the county for an agreed-upon amount, as well as provide any needed right of way and easements for the road expansion.

  1. That will hurt county income by eliminating an easy speed trap for the County Sheriff. A cop can sit there all day & collect ticket revenue. Maybe a toll booth would replace it?
