Shellhorn Road-Loudoun County Parkway to MWAA Property
This project provides for the planning, design, right-of-way acquisition and construction of Shellhorn Road from Loudoun County Parkway to the northern boundary of Dulles Airport. The project will result in the construction of a new four-lane median divided roadway. Work on this road segment is being performed by developers in the area in partnership with Loudoun County.
Background and Current Status of Shellhorn Road
Shellhorn Road will be extended to become a collector road along the north side of the Dulles Greenway. The road currently ends at Loudoun County Parkway and is being constructed to extend eastward, parallel to the Dulles Greenway, until it reaches existing Lockridge Road. From there, Shellhorn Road will turn to the south and follow the alignment of Lockridge Road until it reaches the northernmost property line of Dulles Airport and the northern entrance to the Loudoun Gateway Silver Line station. The road will continue eastward to connect with the extension of Sterling Boulevard. Developer of Silver District West has proffered to construct a portion of this road.
Current Status: April 2021
Construction of the western portion of this road segment has begun and is anticipated to be finished in summer 2021.
Design for the remaining segment has been submitted to the County for review and approval.
