(York, Pa.) Wagman Heavy Civil, Inc., alongside representatives from the Town of Leesburg, Loudoun County, and the Virginia Department of Transportation, celebrated the opening of the Route 7 and Battlefield Parkway interchange in Leesburg, Virginia, at a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, June 28, 2021.
As one of the busiest commuter routes in the area, the new interchange provides traffic congestion relief, allowing vehicles to travel Route 7 with ease. Wagman constructed the new bridge over Route 7 and the associated ramps in under a year, prior to the July 4th holiday, as planned.
“In our line of work, we are used to planning, and often adapt our plans to overcome variables, such as extreme weather. However, I want to recognize the outstanding work from the project team in achieving this milestone, despite a once in a lifetime global pandemic,” said Greg Andricos, president and coo of Wagman Heavy Civil. He continues, “We appreciated collaborating with VDOT and Loudoun County, and welcomed the opportunity to work directly with the Town of Leesburg to deliver this high-quality interchange, safely, in only 11 months.”
Designed by Parsons Transportation Group, the project team includes Wagman Heavy Civil, general contractor, along with Quinn Consulting Services and CES Consulting. The remainder of construction on the project, including a shared-use path to enhance mobility for bicyclists and pedestrians, is expected to wrap up by the fall.
