Construction crews working on the Loudoun County Courthouse Expansion project at the corner of Church Street and Edwards Ferry Road in downtown Leesburg are nearly finished with the new building's exterior. The roof has been completed and work to install windows and exterior finishes, such as the aluminum curtainwall, is nearing completion. The expansion project includes the design and construction of a new 92,000-square-foot Loudoun County District Courthouse and renovation of existing courts facilities, including new parking facilities.
Inside the building, crews are hanging drywall on the first and second floors and preparing to supply temporary power to the new courthouse building, which is required for the next phase of construction.
On the outside of the building, Church Street from Market to Cornwall remains closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. In this area, crews completed drilling micro-piles and the Support of Excavation (SOE) work for the new tunnel connecting the existing courthouse to the new courthouse. Work to excavate the tunnel slab and wall structure is underway, and preparations to support the existing courthouse structure have begun. Dry utility work impacting traffic patterns is complete for now but will resume on Church Street once the tunnel has been constructed.
The Loudoun County Courthouse Expansion project is expected to be complete and open to the public in 2023.
Visitors to the Loudoun County Courthouse will continue to have access to free parking throughout the duration of the project at the Pennington Lot and Pennington Garage which are located approximately two blocks from the courthouse near the intersection of Church and North Streets, NE. View parking details and a map of the shuttle route and walking path in this flyer (PDF).
