Old Route 659

Project: Old Route 659/Gum Spring Road (West Spine Road)

Client(s): Greenvest, L.C.

Length: 4.2 miles

Description: Major Collector Roadway (4-lane Section)

Location: Loudoun County, Virginia

Project Elements: 
This project upgrades an existing north/south corridor from Prince William County north to US Route 50. The project is a controlled access urban collector designed at 45 mph and is upgradeable to a 6-lane facility within the median. The project proposes an interchange at Route 50.

Engineering Tasks: 
Engineering Tasks: Alignment and feasibility studies; construction plans, specifications and documents; cost and bond estimates.

Of Special Note: 
This project was challenging in the sense that the alignment was set along existing Gum Spring Road and provided a 40' median. The new alignment was to meet current VDOT design standards without impacting the existing roadway or its drainage systems. The project included over 2.2 miles of 16" watermain and one flood alternation.
