Route 15 Bypass/Edwards Ferry Road Interchange project information from Fiscal Year 2018 Budget (Project No. 09307)
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 Edwards Ferry Road at the Route 15 Leesburg Bypass and will include the intersection at Fort Evans Road. The existing signalized at-grade intersection at this location is heavily congested. Route 15 serves as a major commuter route, and there are numerous large retail developments in the area that generate significant traffic volumes. Also, currently there is a large volume of pedestrian traffic, which crosses the bypass between the residential areas inside the bypass and the commercial development outside the bypass.
VDOT and NVTA have committed to provide funding for preliminary engineering in their respective plans. Funding for right-of-way acquisition, utility relocations, and construction will be identified after design is completed.
As of January 24, 2018 - On May 9, 2017, Council endorsed VDOT's Design Alternative C (aerial drawing) for the project, which includes grade-separated interchanges at both Edwards Ferry Road (rendering) and Fort Evans Road (rendering) with the Route 15 Bypass elevated over the two streets. For more information, please see VDOT's project website.
A public informational meeting was held by VDOT on March 2, 2017 in Leesburg.
The Town has received an allocation of $2 million from the NVTA (Northern Virginia Transportation Authority). This project is being administered by VDOT.
