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 June 1, 2018 - This project is being administered by VDOT. Town Council endorsed major design elements of the project on April 24, 2018, as shown on the displays from the March 2018 VDOT public hearing. VDOT is currently in the process of selecting a design/build contractor and the preliminary design and interchange justification report is underway.
NVTA funding in the amount of $20 million was awarded in Fiscal Year 2017, for total NVTA funding to date of $33 million. The Town has applied to NVTA for the remaining funding of $25 million needed to fully fund the project.
