Crews constructing a new segment of Northstar Boulevard from Route 50 to Tall Cedars Parkway in Aldie have completed constructing the bridge over South Fork Broad Run. In addition to roadway and bridge construction, this project includes the construction of new signalized intersections at Route 50, Marwood Drive and Tall Cedars Parkway located near Arcola Mills Elementary School.
Over the next several weeks, work to pave the new roadway will continue along with signal and intersection improvement work. Crews are preparing to begin trail construction, road striping and signal installation.
When completed, this segment of Northstar Boulevard will provide an alternative north/south connection from Route 50 to Prince William County, addressing traffic congestion in the corridor and improving capacity and safety on existing roadway networks within the Dulles South area. Construction is expected to be completed by winter 2024.
Northstar Boulevard is part of the North/South Corridor of Statewide Significance as described in the Virginia Transportation Plan (VTrans), addressing congestion on parallel north/south routes between I-95 and Dulles International Airport and connecting travelers to activity centers in Loudoun County and beyond. The county is also developing another segment of Northstar Boulevard from Evergreen Mills Road (formerly Shreveport Drive) to Route 50, which will join with the existing roadway in the Brambleton area. Construction of this segment is expected to begin in late 2022.
