Pave Sycolin Road NOW!
Despite unanimous support from the Board of Supervisors and a 6-1 resolution from the Leesburg Town Council, VDOT is refusing to pave Sycolin Road between Leesburg Airport and Belmont Ridge Road (Rt. 659) in Ashburn. Only .7 of a mile of Sycolin is gravel -- causing flat tires and about 50 accidents. It is an important reliever route for Route 7 and the Dulles Greenway, where tolls are going to skyrocket. More than 2,600 cars use the road today -- an 80% increase in ONE year. But VDOT won\'t pave it in place, choosing instead to wait until 2009. Meanwhile, in late July they paved a gravel portion of Edwards Ferry Road with Loudoun County money! VDOT argues they had &quot;complaints&quot; about Edwards Ferry. So, why don\'t you complain to VDOT about Sycolin Road Please join me in urging VDOT to Pave Sycolin Road NOW! Thanks Ken Reid Leesburg Town Council
