Recently Completed: Belmont Ridge Road at the Dulles Greenway in Loudoun County

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

This project widened about a half-mile of Belmont Ridge Road (Route 659) from two to four lanes at the Dulles Greenway (Route 267).

Drivers on Belmont Ridge Road now have two lanes in each direction at the Dulles Greenway interchange, with two-foot shoulders on both sides. On the bridge, the widening was done entirely within the existing deck.

Other improvements include:

  • A new traffic signal at Belmont Ridge Road and the westbound Dulles Greenway on- and off-ramps. The traffic signal includes a flashing yellow arrow for drivers turning left from northbound Belmont Ridge Road to the westbound Dulles Greenway on-ramp.
  • Partially reconstructing the ramp from southbound Belmont Ridge Road to the eastbound Dulles Greenway and moving the ramp entrance slightly south.
  • Repaving and restriping Belmont Ridge Road just north and just south of the bridge.

Within the project limits, Belmont Ridge Road averages up to 19,000 vehicles a day and the Dulles Greenway averages up to 34,000.
