THE GREENWAY ANNOUNCES COMPLETION
OF $20 MILLION ROAD IMPROVEMENTS
New road improvements will alleviate morning and evening peak congestion for commuters in the Northern Virginia region
Sterling, VA (August 27, 2020) – Today TRIP II, the owner and operator of the Greenway, announced the completion of two capital improvement projects at the eastern and western ends of the road that are now open to commuters. TRIP II has invested nearly $20 million in this most recent 20-month capital works program with approximately $3 million in further works to be completed over the next 18 months. The two completed projects were undertaken in partnership with Dewberry and Shirley Construction on the design and construction of these improvements.
The completed improvement project at the east end of the facility includes the addition of a lane that extends from the Greenway’s mainline plaza along the Dulles Toll Road to Centreville Road, which will ease morning peak congestion and improve the safety of the merge between Greenway customers and traffic entering the Dulles Toll Road from Route 28 and Dulles International Airport. At the west end of the Greenway the ramp to the Leesburg Bypass was reconfigured to accommodate increased Battlefield Parkway traffic (un-tolled) and help alleviate evening peak congestion. Additionally, a planned joint project with Loudoun County and the Town of Leesburg will extend a lane along the westbound Leesburg Bypass, a public road, between the Greenway and northbound King Street to improve the congestion and safety of both roads through that area.
“The completion of these road improvements demonstrates the Greenway’s ongoing commitment to providing a safer, more reliable and more efficient driving experience for Northern Virginia commuters and the regions’ visitors,” said Renée Hamilton, CEO of the Dulles Greenway. “In a region that is in need of solutions for traffic and congestion, these projects are another example of the integral role the Greenway plays in optimizing the regional transportation network.”
The Greenway is dedicated to delivering a high-quality experience to consumers in Northern Virginia. These road improvements have been designed to increase the capacity of the road at critical choke points to help reduce travel times and stress during the morning and evening peak periods.
