JOIN VDOT FOR SYCOLIN OVERPASS MEETING JUNE 4
“Pardon Our Dust” meeting 7 p.m. at Cool Spring Elementary


LEESBURG—Meet the Virginia Department of Transportation’s project team and learn more about construction and traffic impacts, including detours for the long-term closure of Sycolin Road, at a “pardon our dust” meeting Tuesday, June 4 from 7-8 p.m. at the Cool Spring Elementary School gymnasium, 501 Tavistock Drive SE in Leesburg.

Crews will start work June 7 on the $20 million project to improve safety and traffic flow by replacing the existing signalized intersection with an overpass carrying Sycolin Road over the Route 7/15 Bypass in Leesburg.

The project will eliminate the traffic signal and existing turn lanes from the Route 7/15 Bypass to Sycolin Road, and from Sycolin Road to the Bypass, removing direct access between the two roads.

The new bridge over the Bypass will include two 12-foot travel lanes in each direction, a sidewalk along the southbound lanes, and a barrier-separated, shared-use path along the northbound lanes.

For more details on the project, visit VDOT’s project page.

Shirley Contracting Company, LLC is the contractor for this design-build project.
