Large Off-Site Fill Material Importing Operation for
the Period of November 23 – December 23, 2015
Drivers using Route 606 (Old Ox Road) and Mercure Circle just west of Dulles Airport may experience some slow traffic Nov. 23 – Dec. 23, 2015, due to dump trucks carrying fill dirt into the site of the Silver Line’s future Rail Yard and Maintenance Facility.
Traffic on other roads in eastern Loudoun may be affected.
Approximately 200 truck loads will be transported daily from the Moorefield area of Ashburn to the rail yard now under construction on Route 606.
Deliveries will begin on Monday, Nov. 23 – Tuesday, Nov. 24. No deliveries will be made between Nov. 25 - 27.
Deliveries will take place for approximately 20 days between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. The dirt will be used to replace materials that have been on the yard site
Here is the travel route: Trucks will travel from the Moorefield Site in Ashburn to the MWAA Rail Yard and Maintenance Facility project site via Ryan Road (VA-772), Belmont Ridge Road (VA-772), Evergreen Mills Road (VA-659) and Old Ox Road (VA-606). ALL TRUCKS WILL TURN RIGHT INTO AND OUT OF PROJECT SITE. Trucks will return to the Moorefield Site via Old Ox Rd (VA-606), Greenway (RT-267), Loudoun County Parkway and Ryan Road (VA-772).
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s office will have a vehicle parked at the project entrance to help maintain traffic flows. Roads will be cleaned during these operations by a sweeper truck.
