The Design phase for the Prentice Drive: Lockridge Road to Loudoun County Parkway project is currently set to be completed in Fall 2023 (October/November/December). This project provides for the design, right of way (ROW) acquisition and construction of a new segment of Prentice Drive (Route 1071) in Ashburn, VA from Lockridge Road (Route 789) to Loudoun County Parkway (Route 607). The project’s ROW phase will begin in winter 2024, following the completion of the design phase. More information about Loudoun County Capital Project phases is provided at loudoun.gov/capitalprojects.
The roadway will be a four-lane urban major collector with turn lanes, in-road bike lanes and sidewalks. This project is currently estimated for substantial completion in fall 2033. The scope of work was originally part of a larger project which included a new segment of Prentice Drive from Loudoun County Parkway to Shellhorn Road (Route 643) but is now being developed separately. More information on the adjoining Prentice Drive project is provided here.
When both projects to construct Prentice Drive are completed, existing Prentice Drive will extend west from Lockridge Road to Shellhorn Road, providing essential connectivity to the Ashburn Metro station. Funding for the project includes Local Tax funding, cash proffers and funding from the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA).
