East Market Street (Rte 7) & Battlefield Parkway Interchange project information from Fiscal Year 2020 Budget (Project No. 15303) 

Construction Start Date: Fall 2019E-Mkt-BF-Aerial-Final

Estimated Completion Date: Fall 2021

Project Manager: Terry Yates 703-771-6671

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.  The existing retail centers in this area generate significant traffic volumes which will increase as proposed new projects are constructed.  The project is a high priority interchange for Loudoun County and the Town and is included in the VDOT 2040 plan.

Project Updates:

As of September 6, 2019 - 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.  Preliminary design, an Interchange Justification Report, and federal environmental documents are all complete and approved.  VDOT awarded a design/build contract in March 2019.  Construction is scheduled to begin this fall.  Limited access for this project was approved by the Commonwealth Transportation Board in May 2019.  A pre-construction neighborhood meeting will be scheduled for this fall.

NVTA has provided full funding for this project in the amount of $58 million.
