LEESBURG – The Virginia Department of Transportation is holding a public information meeting Tuesday, May 16 on plans to replace the traffic signal at Route 7 (East Market Street) and Battlefield Parkway with an interchange to reduce congestion and improve traffic operations. Four design alternatives for the interchange are being considered as part of the preliminary design phase of the project.  

The project also includes:

  • Accommodations for cyclists and pedestrians
  • New interchange lighting

Preliminary engineering has been funded by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority.
