Construction Start Date: TBD     

FY16-Aerial-Final 

Estimated Completion Date: TBD

Project Manager: Terry Yates 703-771-6671

Project Description:  This project consists of development of a new grade-separated interchange on Edwards Ferry Road at the Route 15 Leesburg Bypass and will include the intersection at Fort Evans Road. The existing signalized at-grade intersection at this location is heavily congested. Route 15 serves as a major commuter route, and there are numerous large retail developments in the area that generate significant traffic volumes. Also, currently there is a large volume of pedestrian traffic, which crosses the bypass between the residential areas inside the bypass and the commercial development outside the bypass.

VDOT  and NVTA have committed to provide funding for preliminary engineering in their respective plans. Funding for right-of-way acquisition, utility relocations, and construction will be identified after design is completed.
