About the Project

This project is widening Belmont Ridge Road (Route 659) from two to four lanes on a six-lane right of way, from Hay Road (Route 642) to Gloucester Parkway (Route 2150) in Loudoun County.

The project is being funded by the county's Northern Virginia Transportation Authority allocations plus county funds.

It ties into the Route 7 / Belmont Ridge Road interchange project (UPC 99481), which is being administered by the county.
