On Thursday, May 17, 2012, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., officials from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will hold a public hearing on the design of the Sycolin Road Overpass.  The public hearing will be held in the lower level of the Leesburg Town Hall (25 West Market Street).

This 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.

At the public hearing, the preliminary designs of the project will be on display.  VDOT staff will be on hand to answer questions and take comments.  Details about the project are also available at www.virginiadot.org/projects/northernvirginia/sycolin_road_overpass.asp.  

Comments on the overpass design may be sent to Arifur Rahman, P.E., at 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030 or by email tomeeting_comments@vdot.virginia.org.  If sending email comments, please reference “Sycolin Road Overpass” in the subject line.
