Construction work on a new segment of Northstar Boulevard from Route 50 to Tall Cedars Parkway in Aldie is nearing completion. Over the next several weeks, crews will complete pedestrian facilities, landscaping work, and the remaining items on the construction punch list. Once complete, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will conduct the final inspection required to open the road. Construction is expected to be substantially completed in fall 2023 (October/November/December).
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.
About the Project
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.
