About the Project

This project will realign and pave the gravel portion of The Woods Road. The project will accommodate future expansion of the Loudoun County Landfill and provide safe and adequate access to communities along the southern portion of the Gleedsville Road corridor.

The project limits extend from 0.4 miles east of Gleedsville Road (Route 650) to Evergreen Mills Road Route (Route 621), in close proximity to the Loudoun County Landfill, Banshee Reeks Nature Preserve and easements held by the Virginia Outdoor Foundation (VOF).

The new road will feature two ten-foot-wide travel lanes, five-foot-wide paved shoulders for cyclists and turn lanes at the Evergreen Mills Road intersection.
