Charles Town Pike Traffic Calming 
This project features roundabouts where Route 9 (Charles Town Pike) intersects with Hillsboro Road and Stony Point Road, as well as sidewalks, crosswalks, on-street parking, landscaping, decorative pavers, and raised intersections and other traffic-calming elements. The project is based on Hillsboro’s master plan, which envisions an inviting, pedestrian-friendly environment through the historic center of town.  This section of Route 9 is one lane in each direction with intermittent shoulders, curbs and narrow sidewalks. Vehicles must parallel park on shoulders, partially on sidewalks, or along the road. Hillsboro also has many buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places (the entire town is eligible) with many buildings only a few feet from the existing pavement. Most right of way through the town is 40 feet wide, with stone retaining walls in some locations. The project is designed to avoid or limit impacts to these types of physical and right of way constraints. Curb and sidewalks have been incorporated, with crosswalks and traffic-calming measures placed at specific locations. On-street parking is proposed at the western and eastern ends of town (back-in angle parking) with parallel parking at select locations. Single-lane roundabouts at Hillsboro Road and Stony Point Road serve as gateway treatments, signaling to motorists that they are entering historic Hillsboro. The eastern roundabout also serves as the new entrance to the Hillsboro Elementary School. The project only has funding for preliminary engineering and is awaiting additional funding to proceed to the right of way and construction phases. The Town of Hillboro and Loudoun County submitted this project for SmartScale funding in Sept. 2016. NVTA approved the remaining $12.112 million in funding June 14; project is now fully funded and construction is anticipated to begin in 2018.

Route 15 Congestion Mitigation Improvements (Town/County/VDOT):  VDOT has identified pre-scoping funds to perform a more rigorous traffic study using the Town study from Wells and Associates as a base. VDOT staff issued a notice to proceed to VHB on May 26, 2015. The study is underway by VHB. The draft report is under review by VDOT staff. When they have completed their review, the report will be presented for discussion to County and Town of Leesburg staff. A meeting to discuss the consultant’s report is scheduled for mid-March, 2016 with VDOT, Town and County staffs. When a path forward is agreed to, the Chairman and District supervisors will be briefed to determine next steps. Staff from VDOT, Loudoun County and the Town of Leesburg met on March 17, 2016 to discuss the draft report; one of the proposed alternatives requires additional analysis and cost estimates need to be obtained in order to identify the recommended alternative. The County issued a task order contract to obtain cost estimates and additional analysis for each alternative; report to be issued in December 2016, project team to brief the Board of Supervisors in early 2017. Data collection is in progress; the study will capture traffic counts from two additional intersections on Business Route 15 (King Street) and include AM peak (southbound) traffic in the analysis. Traffic counts have been captured at additional intersections; field observations have been made. Traffic modeling in progress; study to be completed in early 2017. The study will be presented to the Board on May 18, 2017. Public input meetings were held on June 26, July 8th and July 15th. An item will be presented to the Board in September or October summarizing public comments and seeking approval on recommended alternatives. The initial round of public input meeting are complete and were attended by 239 people; 2,006 people took the on-line survey; the 1st Stakeholder Committee meeting was held on August 1, 2017, and the 2nd Stakeholder Committee meeting is scheduled for September 14, 2017. The public input concluded that the top concerns are congestion relief, safety, and access; the majority of citizens support widening between Battlefield Parkway and Whites Ferry Road; the majority of citizens prefer a grade separated interchange at King Street and roundabout at Whites Ferry Road. The Congestion Report is scheduled to go back to Board with the public’s recommendation in October 19, 2017. Traffic counts for northern segment will be completed in September 2017. The second stakeholder meeting was held on September 14, 2017.
