Loudoun County Government: Loudoun To Hold Virtual Public Meeting June 23 On Route 15 Comprehensive Plan Amendment
Press release from the Loudoun County Government: June 8, 2021 Loudoun County is hosting an online meeting to gain input from the public on the Route 15 from Montresor Road (Route 661) to the Maryland state line Comprehensive Plan amendment (CPAM). The public information meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. This CPAM would revise the planned ultimate condition of this corridor and potentially modify associated content and policy statements in the 2019 Comprehensive Plan. Members of the public are invited to join the virtual meeting to learn and ask questions about the amendment. Login information and meeting materials are available for review at loudoun.gov/route15CPAM and loudoun.gov/remoteparticipation. Meeting materials will include exhibits and speaker sign-up and comment forms. Members of the public must sign up in advance by 12:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 22, 2021, to ask questions during the event. Online participants may also send questions to the project team as chat messages, which will be answered during the meeting as time allows. In 2016, Loudoun County initiated a Route 15 Congestion Study to identify the cause of recurring congestion on Route 15 north of Leesburg. The study report concluded that additional capacity was needed along the corridor and recommended widening Route 15 to four lanes from Battlefield Parkway to a point north of Whites Ferry Road. At the Board of Supervisors' direction, the report was expanded to include a Safety and Operations Analysis of Route 15 from Whites Ferry Road to the Maryland state line. On March 6, 2018, a CPAM was approved to amend the 2010 Countywide Transportation Plan to revise the planned ultimate condition of the segment of Route 15 between North King Street and Montresor Road from a two-lane, local access, undivided rural arterial roadway to a four-lane median-divided road.
