Loudoun County invites members of the public to attend a “pardon our dust” meeting about the Northstar Boulevard extension Wednesday, December 1, 2021, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Arcola Elementary School, 41740 Tall Cedars Parkway, Aldie. At this meeting, the public will receive a broad overview of the project timeline and learn about the stages of construction. Speakers can sign up to speak onsite.
This project provides for the construction of a new segment of Northstar Boulevard from Route 50 to Tall Cedars Parkway, addressing traffic congestion in the corridor, and improving capacity and safety on existing roadway networks within the Dulles South area. The project includes the construction of a new signalized intersection on Route 50, located near the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Arcola maintenance area headquarters. When completed, this segment of Northstar Boulevard will provide an alternative north/south connection to Route 50.
Northstar Boulevard is part of the North/South Corridor of Statewide Significance as described in the Virginia Transportation Plan (VTrans), addressing congestion on parallel north/south routes between I-95 and Dulles International Airport and connecting travelers to activity centers in Loudoun County and beyond. The county is also developing another segment of Northstar Boulevard from Evergreen Mills Road (formerly Shreveport Drive) to Route 50, which will join this segment with the existing roadway in the Brambleton area. Construction of this segment is expected to begin in late 2022.
Funding for this project is from the state Revenue Sharing Program administered by VDOT, the NVTA Regional Revenue Fund (70% Funds) and Local Distribution Fund (30% Funds), and proffers. Construction is expected to be completed by winter 2024.
