Transportation Update: Catoctin District Supervisor Geary Higgins

Here's a transportation-related update from Loudoun County Supervisor Geary Higgins, as published in his first Catoctin District newsletter:

I recently met with Farid Bigdeli from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to discuss ways in which the Board of Supervisors can cooperate with VDOT to accomplish some of the goals I set forth in my campaign.

I believe that we need to build an over-pass on the Route 7 Bypass at the Sycolin Road intersection in Leesburg; there needs to be a third lane added to the Bypass heading west of Leesburg from Business Route 7 to Clarke’s Gap and we need to build access ramps on the Bypass at Route 690/Hillsboro Road to provide egress to and from Woodgrove High School in Purcellville.

Additionally, we need to add a right turn lane On Route 9 heading west at Route 287 and we need to complete the four lane portion of Fort Evans Road where it connects to Riverside Parkway in Leesburg. I would also like to work towards completion of the overpass at Route 659/Belmont Ridge Road.
