Posted on September 24, 2021 at 2:14 PM by Heidi Kellum

Loudoun County is scheduled to begin utility work as part of the Courthouse Complex Expansion in Leesburg on Sunday, September 26, 2021, weather permitting. Residents will see increased construction activity and changes to the vehicular traffic flow on Edwards Ferry Road and Church Street.

The following work is scheduled to occur over the next several weeks:

  • Sanitary and Water Work to Include Closure of Edwards Ferry Road During Evening Hours: From Sunday, September 26 to approximately Friday, October 1, 2021, construction crews will work from 7:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. on new courthouse sanitary and water main connections. The work will take place on Edwards Ferry Road directly adjacent to the new courthouse. Members of the public should expect construction noise and bright lights at the construction site. In addition, a portion of Edwards Ferry Road adjacent to the new courthouse will be closed each evening until this work is complete. Drivers should expect detour signs and barricades each evening. All barriers will be removed by 7:00 a.m. when the road will open to vehicular traffic.
  • Utility Work to Include Partial Closure of Church Street: Utility work by Dominion Power, Comcast and Verizon will begin during the week of September 27, 2021, and end on or about the week of October 11, 2021. Dominion Power will install a new temporary power pole with transformers to provide power to the historic building at the corner of Market and Church Streets known as the “Valley Bank building,” and Comcast and Verizon will relocate their communication lines to the new pole. No power outages are expected for residents. 

Please note: Drivers should expect a partial lane closure of Church Street starting at the corner of East Market Street and Church Street. A travel lane will be maintained until October 4, 2021.

Visitors to the Loudoun County Courthouse will continue to have access to the existing building. Free parking is available in the Pennington Lot and Pennington Garage, which is located off Church Street, approximately two blocks from the courthouse.
