About the Project

Note: Gloucester Parkway extension opened on Aug. 4, 2016.

This project extended Gloucester Parkway from Loudoun County Parkway to the intersection of Pacific Boulevard and Nokes Boulevard in Loudoun County. 

The project consisted of:

  • 3/4 mile of a four-lane divided highway;
  • A new bridge over Broad Run;
  • Intersection improvements and traffic signals at Loudoun County Parkway (Route 607) and Pacific Boulevard (Route 1036); and
  • Trail and sidewalk improvements.

Project highlights:

  • By fall 2017, the $30 million Gloucester Parkway extension will carry 10,000 cars—cars that currently use Route 7 and Waxpool Road—and alleviate traffic along parallel roads like Route 28.
  • The Gloucester Parkway bridge is the longest jointless bridge in Virginia, and won’t need significant maintenance for 100 years.

Background

On March 3, 2014, VDOT entered into a Design-Build contract with Shirley/Dewberry for final design and construction of the project. Design and environmental permitting for the project were completed in December 2014. Right-of-way acquisition for the six private properties impacted by the project began in October 2014 and was completed in the spring of 2015. Construction started in December 2014 and the project was completed in August 2016.

VDOT administered the project at the request of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. The project was entirely funded by the county.
