Loudoun County officials announce an upcoming planned closure of a section of Gloucester Parkway at Belmont Ridge Road. The closure is necessary to shift traffic onto the future southbound lanes of Belmont Ridge Road and connect Gloucester Parkway to the new temporary traffic pattern. The work is related to the Route 7-Route 659 (Belmont Ridge Road) interchange construction.

The Gloucester Parkway weekend closure is set to begin Friday, May 19, 2017, at 9:00 p.m. and is expected to last until 5:00 a.m. Monday, May 22, 2017.  During that time, construction activity will be conducted in 12-hour shifts night and day until the work required to connect Gloucester Parkway to the future southbound lanes of Belmont Ridge Road is completed.  An alternate weekend has been set for June 2 to June 5, 2017, should the weather or an unforeseen circumstance prohibit the work from being conducted the weekend of May 19.  

The Gloucester Parkway closure will extend from Belmont Ridge Road east to Alexandra’s Grove Drive and Tournament Parkway.  Detours will be set up to maintain traffic north and south of Gloucester Parkway allowing traffic intended to access Belmont Ridge Road from westbound Gloucester Parkway or traffic intended to access Gloucester Parkway eastbound from Belmont Ridge Road to circumvent the road closure.  

In advance of the traffic shift and Gloucester Parkway closure, electronic message boards advising the public of the upcoming work will be posted on or about May 15, 2017. Loudoun County officials urge the traveling public to avoid the area during the weekend construction activity and if necessary to follow detour route signs to access portions of Gloucester Parkway not impacted by the road closure.    

A map of the detour routes as well as more information about the Route 7/659 interchange project can be found at www.loudoun.gov/route7-659. Questions about the project may be directed to the Loudoun County Department of Transportation & Capital Infrastructure by email.
