May 15 Meeting on Changes to Gum Spring Road and Route 50 Intersection

A community information meeting to discuss the opening of the new intersection of Gum Spring Road and Route 50 is scheduled for 7 p.m. next Thursday, May 15, at Mercer Middle School, 42149 Greenstone Drive in Aldie.

Staff from Loudoun County Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure and the Virginia Department of Highways will be on hand at the meeting hosted by Dulles District Supervisor Matthew F. Letourneau.

The new intersection is set to open Wednesday, May 21. At that time, the existing portion of Gum Spring Road will be closed just before the intersection with Tall Cedars Parkway. This will close permanently with a cul-de-sac to be constructed. Access will still be provided at Route 50 for the Gum Spring Village Center. However, any through traffic for Gum Spring south of the Gum Spring Village Center will want to use the new portion of Gum Spring at the new signal located just to the east of the Gum Spring Village Center.

The section of Tall Cedars Parkway between Gum Spring Road and Millstream Drive will also close for 60 to 90 days to allow a reconstruction of the Tall Cedars and Gum Spring intersection to fix elevation issues and install turn lanes. There will be a detour route established during this time using Greenstone Drive to Stone Springs Boulevard. Following completion of this intersection, work will begin on a new turn lane for Providence Ridge.

Visual representations of the work and the detours will be on display at the meeting.
