Leesburg, VA (May 4, 2020) – Construction on the West Market Street sidewalk project is expected to begin on Monday, May 11, 2020. Approximately 0.2 miles of sidewalk will be replaced along the north side of West Market Street, between Morven Park Road and Ayr Street, with brick sidewalks that will be in compliance with ADA regulations and constructed to provide a safer walking environment.

The first phase of work will include the installation of a water line beginning at the intersection of Morven Park Road and West Market Street as well as the relocation of two utility poles owned by Dominion Energy. 

West Market Street, between Ayr Street and Morven Park Road, will be closed daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Monday, May 11 to Friday, May 15. During this time, Dominion Energy will be performing their relocation work and the contractor, Madian Construction, Inc., will be installing the waterline. After the utility relocation work is complete, construction activities will continue under a one lane closure, with the use of flagmen, through June 12, 2020. 

In the event of inclement weather or unforeseen issues, the road closures will be delayed. Updates will be posted to the Town’s website and social media accounts on a regular basis. Anyone with questions is asked to call 703-737-7055.
