About the Project

This project is realigning and paving the gravel portion of The Woods Road. The project will accommodate future expansion of the Loudoun County Landfill and provide safe and adequate access to communities along the southern portion of the Gleedsville Road corridor.

The project limits extend from 0.4 miles east of Gleedsville Road (Route 650) to Evergreen Mills Road Route (Route 621), in close proximity to the Loudoun County Landfill, Banshee Reeks Nature Preserve and easements held by the Virginia Outdoor Foundation (VOF).

The project is occurring in two phases. The first phase involves the realignment of The Woods Road. The new road will be paved and feature two ten-foot-wide travel lanes, as well as five-foot-wide paved shoulders for cyclists. The second phase will add turn lanes at the Evergreen Mills Road intersection.
