CTB AWARDS CONTRACT TO RECONSTRUCT & WIDEN BELMONT RIDGE ROAD
Construction between Gloucester Parkway and Hay Road begins next spring

ASHBURN—At its monthly meeting yesterday, the Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded a design-build contract worth $45.5 million to Shirley Contracting Company LLC of Lorton and Dewberry of Fairfax to improve Belmont Ridge Road between Gloucester Parkway and Hay Road.

The project will widen Belmont Ridge Road from two to four lanes and add a dividing median. It will also add curbs and gutters, a bridge over the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail, shared-use paths on both sides of Belmont Ridge Road, direct connections from the shared-use paths to the W&OD Trail and a parking lot for trail users.

The project is scheduled to begin in the spring with completion set for late 2018.

For more information, visit the project page. The project will tie into the Route 7/Belmont Ridge Road interchange project, which is being administered by Loudoun County.
