VDOT Proposed Project
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is exploring options for a limited-access roadway to the west of Dulles Airport. The purpose of the project is to enhance the movement of people, passenger services and air cargo traffic to Dulles Airport and the planned Phase 2 extension of the Metrorail Silver Line. The proposed project is intended to reduce congestion and improve capacity on the existing roadway network in the Dulles South area.
VDOT is conducting an environmental study of a proposed Dulles Air Cargo, Passenger and Metro Access Highway that would extend from the interchange of the planned Tri-County Parkway (VA Route 411) and John Mosby Highway (US Route 50) to a future airport road for access to Washington Dulles International Airport. View the revised Environmental Assessment dated April 2014 (PDF). VDOT made a presentation to the Board of Supervisors on February 19, 2014 (PDF).
Countywide Transportation Plan
The Loudoun County Countywide Transportation Plan (CTP) will play an important role in the Board's deliberations on this matter.
