Sycolin Road in Leesburg to reopen Aug. 12
The opening restores a major north-south route into and out of downtown Leesburg.
Sycolin Road was closed in June 2013 for the construction of the bridge over the bypass, eliminating the dangerous at-grade intersection.
Construction on the sound barriers and other elements of the new overpass project is expected to be completed by the end of November. The Town of Leesburg’s work on a portion of Sycolin Road will be completed by the end of the year.
The Town of Leesburg will celebrate the reopening with a 10 a.m. ribbon cutting. Virginia Secretary of Transportation, Aubrey Layne, Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Chairman Scott York and Leesburg Mayor Kristen Umstattd will be joined by senior VDOT officials, members of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors and Leesburg Town Council Members to officially open the new bridge.
Parking for the ribbon cutting will be on Sycolin Road, between Gateway Drive and the new bridge, on the north side of the bridge.
