Sycolin Road To Be Paved

According to Living in LoCo, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) announced today that it will begin paving the last 1.3 mile stretch of gravel road on Sycolin Road in March.  Two 12 foot wide lanes with four feet wide shoulders (along with some road straightening and drainage improvements) are set to be completed by November.  This is great news if you are one of the roughly 3200 cars that travel this road daily (I am!) to take the ‘back way’ between Leesburg to Ashburn.  (No more dirty car! Yahoo!) The project is expected to cost $2.5 million.

I’ll post some pictures to update once they get underway.

Cheers,

Heather

UPDATE: Sycolin Road will be CLOSED starting June 22nd until the beginning of September between Turner Farm Lane and Gulick Road while the improvements and paving take place!! (thank you to Erica Garman at Living in LoCo for the heads up!)

    This is a very welcome project. The fact that the Dulles Tollway just went up to $4.50 (One-way) is outrageous for the 13 miles that you travel. I know there will be increased traffic on Sycolin, but it should flow smoothly. KUDOS to Loudoun County for this much needed project from Ashburn to Leesburg.

    […] I drive Sycolin Road between Leesburg and Ashburn every time I go in to my office, and I have to say I’m impressed at the speed at which they are making the road improvements there! I snapped this picture last week, you can see that they have taken out a full lane’s width strip of trees on the side of the road already. Projected finish date is November of this year.  (You can read my original post on the road improvements here.) […]
