Loudoun County, in partnership with the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), invites members of the public to celebrate the completion of construction of Northstar Boulevard, Phase II, from Route 50 to Tall Cedars Parkway. A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, October 19, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. near the intersection of Northstar Boulevard and Marrwood Drive in Aldie.
Members of the Board of Supervisors, NVTA and VDOT are scheduled to be on hand for the ceremonial ribbon cutting for this regionally significant project. The new segment of Northstar Boulevard is scheduled to open to traffic following the event on October 19, 2023.
This project constructed a segment of Northstar Boulevard from Route 50 to Tall Cedars Parkway, addressing traffic congestion in the corridor, and improving capacity and safety on existing roadway networks within the Dulles south area. The project includes the construction of a new signalized intersection on Route 50, located near VDOT’s Arcola maintenance area headquarters. This new segment of Northstar Boulevard provides an alternative north/south connection to Route 50, improving capacity and safety on existing roadway networks within the Dulles south area.
Northstar Boulevard is part of the North/South Corridor of Statewide Significance, 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 constructing Phase I of Northstar Boulevard from Evergreen Mills Road (formerly Shreveport Drive) to Route 50, which will join this segment with the existing roadway in the Brambleton area. Funding for this project is from the state Revenue Sharing Program administered by VDOT, the NVTA Regional Revenue Fund (70% Funds) and Local Distribution Fund (30% Funds), and proffers. Construction is expected to be completed by winter 2024.
