Crosstrail Boulevard, Segment B

Loudoun County, VA

Branch worked as a subcontractor to General Contractor/Owner Agent (GC/ OA) Merritt Construction Services on this project that included the construction of a new four-lane, median divided one-mile road segment, extending Crosstrail Boulevard from Kincaid Boulevard to Russell Branch Parkway at its existing intersection with River Creek Parkway. The project included the following major elements:

  • A 115 foot long bridge carries Crosstrail Boulevard over the W&OD Trail Regional Park.
  • A direct pedestrian and bicycle connection between the W&OD Trail and Crosstrail Boulevard.
  • A 500 foot long bridge over Tuscarora Creek.
  • Clearing and grubbing and mass earthwork, including a significant amount of rock excavation and excess materials that had to be hauled off site.
  • Construction of retaining walls, four storm water retention and bioretention facilities, including 177 LF of 12 foot x 6 foot box culvert, 9300+ LF of storm sewer main, 90+ storm structures.
  • Construction of a temporary and permanent access road for the Federal Aviation Administra¬tion (FAA) and an adjacent project.

This new location project included a new four-lane, median-divided road segment provides a con-nection from Sycolin Road near Philip A. Bolen Memorial Park to Route 7. It will also serve as an alternate route to both Battlefield Parkway to the north and Cochran Mill Road to the south and will improve access to Loudoun Soccer’s facility and the Loudoun United soccer stadium. The project was faced with many access issues during construction.
The W&OD Pedestrian Trail and the Tuscarora Creek both cut perpendicularly through the proj¬ect. Access to the portion of the project between these two features was initially planned via a secondary road adjacent to the project. However, it was determined that the road was privately owned and the project had no rights for its use.
