LOUDOUN COUNTY STONE RIDGE ENHANCED TRANSIT
A groundbreaking ceremony for this project was held on October 25, 2016. Loudoun County has awarded a construction contract to Phillips Construction, LLC for the project, which is expected to be completed by July 2017. A grant agreement between NVTC and the project sponsor has been signed.
This project includes the construction of a 300-space parkand-ride lot and two years of operation for new commuter bus transit service from the new lot in the unincorporated community of Aldie. Aldie, located in Loudoun County between Chantilly and Middleburg, is adjacent to Arcola, an activity center identified by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments and one of the fastest growing parts of the county. The project application will support the capital costs of purchasing two new buses and support the operational assistance to provide two years of new bus service.
This program will have an immediate impact, benefiting tollpayers by reducing the number of single-occupancy vehicles (SOV) on I-66 inside the Beltway, providing bus connections and service to Washington DC via I-66, and converting SOV riders to transit riders.
The project is estimated to cost $2,628,980- 74% of which will be funded by the I-66 Commuter Choice Project.
