Dulles Greenway Eastbound Ramp to Northbound Belmont Ridge Road in Loudoun Reopens Today
Truck and non-truck detours no longer needed


Eastbound Dulles Greenway Ramp to Northbound Belmont Ridge Road on Jan. 28

ASHBURN – Around 3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31, the eastbound Dulles Greenway (Route 267) ramp to northbound Belmont Ridge Road (Route 659) will reopen to traffic, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

On Jan. 10, the ramp closed due to reconstruction work as part of the Belmont Ridge Road at the Dulles Greenway project. Since then, eastbound Dulles Greenway non-truck traffic has been detoured via a u-turn at Broadlands Boulevard, while eastbound truck traffic has had to exit at Claiborne Parkway (Route 901) and follow Broadlands Boulevard back to northbound Belmont Ridge Road. Once the ramp reopens this afternoon, both detours will no longer be necessary, as all traffic will again be able to turn left onto northbound Belmont Ridge Road. 

When the Belmont Ridge Road at Dulles Greenway project is complete, drivers on Belmont Ridge Road will have two lanes in each direction at the Dulles Greenway interchange, with two-foot shoulders on both sides. On the bridge, the widening is occurring entirely within the existing deck.

Other improvements as part of this project include: 

  • A new traffic signal (including a flashing yellow arrow) at Belmont Ridge Road and the westbound Dulles Greenway on- and off-ramps
  • Partially reconstructing the ramp from southbound Belmont Ridge Road to the eastbound Dulles Greenway and moving the ramp entrance slightly south of its current location
  • Repaving and restriping Belmont Ridge Road just north and just south of the bridge
  • Retiming and adjusting the traffic signal at Belmont Ridge Road and Sycolin Road

The project is scheduled for completion in fall 2020.
