Two road segments in the Arcola area of Loudoun County are being renamed. Effective Thursday, February 27, 2020, the southern section of Evergreen Mills Road, from the intersection near Strickland Drive south to Loudoun County Parkway, will be known as Arcola Mills Drive. Shreveport Drive is being renamed Evergreen Mills Road.
New road signs are scheduled to be installed February 27, 2020. In case of inclement weather, the signs will be installed March 5, 2020.
The road name changes are necessary due to development in the area that resulted in road improvements. The changes reflect a new, continuous alignment of Evergreen Mills Road and will promote easier navigation for the vehicles that travel Evergreen Mills Road, which sees an estimated 20,000 vehicle trips per day. In addition, the road name changes help assure adequate public safety responses. The county’s road naming and renaming process is outlined in Chapter 1020: Naming of Streets of the Loudoun County Codified Ordinances.
Letters will be mailed to owners of 97 affected parcels this week to notify them of the road names and address changes and the effective date. The property owners were initially notified of the planned road realignments in the spring of 2019 and were invited to participate in the process of selecting a new name for the section of Evergreen Mills Road through Arcola. More than half of all property owners eligible to vote participated in the renaming process. A total of 40 properties will require a change to their addresses. For a detailed look at the impact of the road name changes, visit the Evergreen Mills Road/Shreveport Drive interactive map.
Questions about the new names and addresses should be directed to the Loudoun County Office of Mapping and Geographic Information at 703-771-5778 or by email.
