VDOT to Hold Public Hearing on the Sycolin Overpass Design
The public hearing will be held in the lower level of the Leesburg Town Hall from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 17.
Officials from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will hold a public hearing on the design of the Sycolin Road Overpass on Thursday, May 17. The public hearing will be held in the lower level of the Leesburg Town Hall from 6 to 8 p.m.
The project will build an overpass to carry Sycolin Road over the Route 7/15 Bypass and remove the existing signalized intersection. The new bridge over the bypass will include two northbound and two southbound travel lanes, a sidewalk along the southbound lands and a barrier-separated shared-use path along the northbound lanes.
Once the overpass is completed, the existing turn lanes from the bypass to Sycolin Road, both north- and south-bound, will be removed. Access to the Bypass from Sycolin Road will be primarily via Battlefield Parkway and the Dulles Greenway. Construction is expected to begin in 2013.
During the public hearing, the preliminary designs of the project will be on display and VDOT staff will be on hand to answer questions. Details about the project are also available online.
