In coordination with Federal Highway Administration, Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA), Loudoun County invites members of the public to attend a “pardon our dust” meeting about the Northstar Boulevard extension from Evergreen Mills Road to Route 50 on Monday, May 15, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Arcola Elementary School, 41740 Tall Cedars Parkway, Aldie. At this meeting, the public will receive a broad overview of the project timeline and learn about the stages of construction.
This project will design and construct a new four-lane, median-divided segment of Northstar Boulevard from Evergreen Mills Road (formerly Shreveport Drive) to U.S. Route 50. The project includes a 10-foot-wide, shared-use path on both sides of the roadway and a traffic signal at Evergreen Mills Road. At the northern end of the project, a new bridge will carry Northstar Boulevard over North Fork Broad Run. Arcola Mills Drive will then be realigned to the south to intersect with Northstar Boulevard.
Northstar Boulevard is part of the North/South Corridor of Statewide Significance as designated by VDOT, addressing congestion and mobility on parallel north/south routes between I-95 and Dulles International Airport and connecting travelers to activity centers in Loudoun County and beyond. It is part of what will be a 14-mile-long corridor extending from Route 7 south to the Prince William County line.
The county is currently constructing the segment of Northstar Boulevard from Route 50 to Tall Cedars Parkway, which will join this segment with the existing roadway in the Brambleton area.
Funding for the Northstar Boulevard Phase 1 project is provided by an FY 2017 Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) discretionary grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation, VDOT, NVTA and county funds. Construction is expected to be completed by winter 2025.
