About the Project
This project aims to improve traffic flow and the local road network by extending Glenn Drive to Cedar Green Road and eliminating the exit from Route 28 to Cedar Green Road. It will further convert Route 28 to a limited-access highway and provide a four-lane connection between Davis Drive and Cedar Green Road.
Glenn Drive will be extended from where it currently ends north to Cedar Green Road. (See project map to the right). Where Cedar Green Road and Glenn Drive will intersect, a new four-lane road will also extend east to Davis Drive. The existing east-west portion of Cedar Green Road will be widened to four lanes similar to Glenn Drive.
The project will also include sidewalks along the north side of Cedar Green, from Shaw Road to Davis Drive. As development along Glenn Drive and the south side of Cedar Green Road progresses, additional pedestrian facilities will be provided by adjacent developers.
Minor improvements to Shaw Road are also planned, including a new southbound auxiliary lane with connection to Cedar Green to the west, and extending the existing northbound turn lane on Shaw Road approximately 125 feet to the intersection with Cedar Green.
These improvements to the local road network are based on Loudoun County’s Comprehensive Plan, which calls for Cedar Green, Shaw Road, Glenn Drive and Davis Drive to be four-lane undivided urban local roadways. Design and construction of these improvements, about 4200 feet in length, are being funded by the County. Construction is being administered by VDOT under the Route 28 PPTA contract and will be maintained by VDOT after completion. Road design meets VDOT criteria and right-of-way was acquired for the full four-lane typical section.
Construction began in early July 2014. Efforts made to have Belfort Park Drive and Glenn Drive open in December 2014 were hampered by utility adjustments, even though asphalt was placed on much of the new construction. Final activities including pavement marking and surface asphalt, as well as the closure of Cedar Green at Route 28, are scheduled for completion in the spring or summer of 2015.
