Rt 7/15 Bypass Intersection w/Sycolin Rd to Close Permanently

June 8, 2013 @ 12:00 am – June 8, 2013 @ 11:45 pm

On Saturday, June 8, 2013, the intersection of the Route 7/15 Bypass and Sycolin Road will be closed permanently. After the intersection is closed, access from the Bypass to Sycolin Road, the Leesburg Executive Airport, Loudoun County’s Philip Bolen Park and other destinations in the southeast sector of Town will be routed via the Dulles Greenway (toll-free) to Battlefield Parkway.

The intersection closure is necessary for the construction of the Sycolin Overpass. During construction, Sycolin Road will be closed from Gateway Drive to Hope Parkway. Construction is expected to last fourteen months. The overpass will open in August 2014, restoring traffic on Sycolin Road between Gateway Drive and Hope Parkway. However, there will be no access to Sycolin Road from the Bypass or to the Bypass from Sycolin Road.
