Transportation Initiatives in the Blue Ridge District

From the "Blue Ridge Community Connection" email newsletter by Blue Ridge District Supervisor, and Vice Chairman of the Board, Janet Clarke comes a list of initiatives, including transportation:

  • Put the Route 7/690 interchange back in the CIP. The voters approved a bond referendum in November 2006 which approved the allocation of $500,000 to complete the conceptual design and preparation of an Interchange Justification Report (IJR) but was taken out in 2006. This much-needed interchange was taken out of the CIP during the Woodgrove High School litigation with the Town of Purcellville.
  • Mitigate traffic on Route 9, particularly in Hillsboro. This is a safety issue.
  • Mitigate traffic at Evergreen Mill and Ryan Road. This is also a safety issue.
  • Expedite completion of the Loudoun County Parkway.
  • Install traffic lights at major intersections in Brambleton.
  • Activate the empty commuter lot on Creighton.
  • Support widening Route 50 to Gilbert’s Corner.
