Leesburg, VA (December 9, 2016) – Last night, the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) approved $20 million in funding for a new interchange at Route 7 and Battlefield Parkway in the Town of Leesburg. The interchange will replace an existing traffic signal. Under the approved funding agreement, the interchange will be designed and constructed by the Virginia Department of Transportation, with an estimated completed date of April 2022. “The Town fought hard for this funding,” noted Leesburg Mayor David Butler. “We are grateful for the full support and assistance of the Loudoun County Boad of Supervisors and the Virginia Department of Transportation in advancing this project in the funding schedule. As Route 7 is a major commuter route, the interchange will benefit the whole region, not just the Town of Leesburg.” For more information about the funding, visit the NVTA website at www.thenovaauthority.org. # # #
