Battlefield Parkway – Route 15 to Dulles Greenway project information from Fiscal Year 2018 Budget (Project No. 07315)
Construction Start Date: Spring 2017 Estimated Completion Date: Spring 2018
Project Description: The project includes construction of a 0.7-mile segment of Battlefield Parkway on new alignment between South King Street (Route 15) and Evergreen Mill Road (Route 621); and widening of the existing Battlefield Parkway to four lanes between Evergreen Mill Road and the Dulles Greenway. The new roadway will be a four-lane divided arterial roadway with parallel sidewalk and shared-use trail. The project will reduce congestion and improve traffic flow to Route 15. This segment will complete the continuous Parkway from North King Street to South King Street around the east side of Town.
The roadway was planned to be constructed as a two lane roadway initially, then widened to four lanes when funding became available. Recently, the Virginia Department of Transportation provided $11 million in funding for the project. This additional funding will allow the Town to construct the entire four-lane roadway under a single contract.

As of April 5, 2018 - Construction is underway. Please see the attached progress report from our construction management firm, Alpha Corporation, for the latest project updates.
On Monday, April 16th, the new lanes of Battlefield Parkway will be permanently opened to traffic. Masons Lane will be temporarily closed to through traffic east of Gleedsville Road for approximately two weeks (depending on weather) while portions of that road are reconstructed. During this period:
- Local traffic will continue to use Masons Lane for access to homes.
- Traffic from Gleedsville Road that normally used Masons Lane to travel east will be required to go north on South King street to the new Battlefield Parkway intersection.
