East Market Street (Rte 7) & Battlefield Parkway Interchange project information from Fiscal Year 2018 Budget (Project No. 15303)
Construction Start Date: TBD
Estimated Completion Date: TBD
Project Manager: Tom Brandon 703-737-6067
Project Description: This project consists of development of a new grade-separated interchange on East Market Street (Route 7) at Battlefield Parkway. The existing at-grade signalized intersection at this location is heavily congested and has one of the highest accident rates in the Town. East Market Street and Battlefield Parkway serve as major commuter routes, and there are large current and proposed retail developments for the area that generate significant traffic volumes.
Partial funding has been received from the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA). Additional funding will be requested from the NVTA and VDOT as this is a high priority interchange for Loudoun County and the Town, and is included in the VDOT 2040 plan.
As of January 24, 2018 - This project is being administered by VDOT. The preliminary design and interchange justification report are underway. NVTA funding in the amount of $20 million was awarded in Fiscal Year 2017, for total NVTA funding to date of $33 million.
An information meeting was held on July 18th for Cardinal Park area businesses and property owners to discuss the project and modifications to the East Market Street and Cardinal Park Drive intersection.
On June 27, 2017, Council endorsed VDOT's Interchange Alternative 4 (aerial drawing) for the project and also Option C-3 (aerial drawing) for Cardinal Park Drive, which allows for right-in / right-out traffic flow and includes a stop sign controlled with an eastbound acceleration lane. For more information, please see VDOT's project website.
A public information meeting was held by VDOT on May 16, 2017 in Leesburg.
