Because I think that money could be better spent. 28, Fairfax Parkway, 29, 50, 7, Braddock Road could all use that money. They are all much more congested.

I agree with everyone, from 2 to 4 doesn't make a lot of sense, especially with all the construction that is happening on Belmont Ridge, before you get to evergreen mills rd (SFHs, townhomes + Apartments), and believe me people in Brambelton do use 606 a lot to get to Herndon/Reston. I don't blame them, I wouldn't pay the greenway either.

In any case, from 2 to 6 lanes would make more sense, but I guess the route 50 fiasco is not enough for them.

You aren't on 606 during rush hour, are you? It will take you around 30-35 minutes to go 8 miles. Also, Loudoun won't pay to fix roads outside the county, like 29 or Fairfax County Parkway, 28 below Sterling or Rt 7 east of Sterling. 50 and Braddock Road already have improvement plans in place.

606 widening is confirmed and will begin in June 2015, but there will only be 4 lanes....

it goes to 4 now, 6 later, and eventually 8. Now i'm certainly not a traffic engineer, but i can't believe that you wouldn't save a ton of cash by doing it all at once.

So I see in the plan they'll connect LCP down at Arcola as part of this, but it doesn't have a timeframe on that. Basically just says the intersection is part of this, but not sure about the building of the rest of LCP itself.

Also, would be really nice if they connected Loudoun Reserve Dr. over to 606. Maybe that would take a bunch of people off Waxpool!


Connecting Shellhorn east of LCP across the Broad Run over to Moran/Lockridge won't hurt either!

Loudoun Reserve Dr. over to 606 is not going to happen. yeah, that would reduce at least 30-50% Waxpool traffic. I heard this from a resident across Rosa Lee school (Sterling side).

What about Shellhorn Rd over Broad Run?
