Officials Celebrate Completion of the Belmont Ridge Road Widening Project

For Immediate Release
Fairfax, VA | 01.09.2019

Road widening design-build project now complete in Loudoun County, Virginia.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the design-build team of Shirley Contracting Company, LLC, and Dewberry recently celebrated the completion of the reconstruction and widening of Belmont Ridge Road from Hay Road to Gloucester Parkway just east of Leesburg in Loudoun County, Virginia.

The existing two-lane section was widened to a four-lane, median-divided roadway. New parallel bridges carrying Belmont Ridge Road over the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail were also completed, eliminating the existing at-grade crossing. Additionally, a new parking lot was designed for the W&OD Trail with a rest area including picnic benches and landscaping. More than 3,200 linear feet of noise barriers were installed, and shared-use paths were constructed for the entire length of the project on both sides of the road.

The $46-million contract included field surveys, engineering, right-of-way acquisition, utility relocation, environmental permitting, construction, quality assurance, and quality control. In addition to providing survey, engineering, and environmental permitting services, Dewberry also performed construction engineering and inspection for the project.
