Coming Soon: Belmont Ridge Road at the Dulles Greenway in Loudoun County

Cost and schedule ►

This project will increase the number of lanes from two to four along Belmont Ridge Road (Route 659) over the Dulles Greenway (Route 267) without structural widening of the existing bridge.

The existing Belmont Ridge Road bridge over the Dulles Greenway is one lane in each direction, with a left turn lane from northbound Belmont Ridge Road to the ramp to the westbound Dulles Greenway. Two lanes are proposed in each direction and a left turn lane on northbound Belmont Ridge Road to westbound Dulles Greenway, with two-foot shoulders on both sides.

North of the bridge, the road will be repaved and restriped, and the traffic signal at Ashburn Farm Parkway/Sycolin Road will be retimed and adjusted. South of the bridge, the road will be reconstructed along with the ramps to and from the eastbound Dulles Greenway.

The project will also include a new traffic signal on Belmont Ridge Road at the westbound Dulles Greenway on- and off-ramps.

Within the project limits, Belmont Ridge Road averages up to 18,000 vehicles a day and the Dulles Greenway averages 33,000. At the Belmont Ridge Road intersection, Sycolin Road averages 13,000 vehicles a day and Ashburn Farm Parkway averages 11,000.
