Changes coming to Loudoun County by 2021 with the addition of Metro
As of July 2016, Phase 2 Construction of extending the Silver Line metrorail into Loudoun County reached 30 percent completion! The design itself is virtually complete, according to information supplied by the Dulles Rail Project team to the FTA this summer.
Silver Line Update
Construction continues at station and support sites, and a mass excavation is underway at the site of the Loudoun Gateway Station. Project crews are continuing to widen roads, shift lanes, pave and stripe. Crews are also performing utility work and other construction for the Silver Line at the same time.
With this in mind expect lane, road, and ramp closures. Several highly trafficked roads will be affected in Loudoun & Fairfax Counties. They include: Dulles Toll Road, Dulles International Airport Access Highway, Autopilot Drive, Rudder Road, Dulles Greenway, Route 28, Centreville Road, Sunrise Valley Drive, and Sunset Hills Road.
The Future of Loudoun County
The Silver Line Metrorail is expected to be completed by 2021. Most noteworthy, by that time the County is anticipating the addition of almost 50,000 residents, 25,000 jobs and over 16,000 new homes. This begs the question: will these residents, jobs, and homes bring new opportunities or more challenges to the County?
To best address this question, the Loudoun Chamber has assembled the region’s top Real Estate and economic development experts. Dubbed “Loudoun 2021”, this discussion on the future of the County’s economy and Real Estate market will take place on September 14, 2016. Loudoun 2021 will feature local Real Estate experts for a panel discussion focused on the county’s major development corridors. Anirban Basu of the Sage Policy Group will be giving the keynote presentation. Click Here for additional details and event registration.
