Project Description:  This important section of Battlefield Parkway provides a direct route for vehicles travelling from southern Leesburg to Battlefield Pkwy - Kincaid to 7 - Open1Route 7.  Construction of this 3,500 foot, $35 million roadway was administered as a design-build project by VDOT under an agreement with the Town.  At the time of its award, the project was the largest design-build project ever awarded by VDOT.   

The project included the following major elements:

  • parallel 1,250-foot bridges over the W&OD Trail and Tuscarora Creek,
  • sidewalk and multi-use trail,
  • soundwalls, and 
  • an intersection to accommodate future Russell Branch Parkway.

Battlefield Pkwy - Kincaid to 7 - Open2Completion of this segment has reduced congestion and improved traffic flow in the region and provides access for the residential neighborhoods in this portion of the Town. 

The project was accomplished by combining funding from over 20 separate federal, state, and local sources.  The tables below indicate funding levels and sources for the total project and the financing and expenditures for Town of Leesburg funding sources.
