Gloucester Parkway’s Extension at Kincora Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Gloucester Parkway is now open! We’re excited and proud that Gloucester Parkway’s extension is finally creating an impact to Loudoun County as a whole by relieving traffic and lowering response times. The bridge will be one of four major roadways crossing over the Broad Run river and is now said to be the longest non-jointed bridge in Virginia, which required far less maintenance than a typical bridge. Later this year, a fifth crossing will be added when Kincora builds the next extension connecting Pacific Boulevard and Russell Branch Parkway.
The ribbon cutting ceremony for the bridge took place on Thursday, July 28th and involved several speakers including representatives from the Virginia Department of Transportation, the State Government (Senator Black), the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors and Kincora. If you’d like to watch the event, visit our Facebook page. We’ve posted a live broadcast, so you can see everything as it unfolds or view our video compilation of the event.
Now that Gloucester Parkway is open, traffic congestion will begin to ease along Waxpool Road, Loudoun County Parkway and Route 28. The emergency response times from Kincora Safety Center will improve as well. We look forward to seeing the many benefits this bridge will offer the area for years to come!
Thank you to VDOT, Shirley Contracting Company, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, Virginia Transportation Infrastructure Bank and the Loudoun Economic Development Authority for working with us to make this monumental thoroughfare advancement possible.
