Route 15 – Weekday Vehicle Trips Grew by 10.5% at the Point of Rocks Bridge in 2017!

The 2017 Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) data for Loudoun County is in:…/2017_traffic_data_by_jurisdict…

The Annual Average Weekday Traffic (AAWDT) for the Virginia side of the Point of Rocks Bridge in 2017 was 21,000. Weekday vehicle trips grew by 10.5% (i.e. 2,000 vehicle trips) in 2017. Weekday vehicle trips for the last five years are as follows:

AAWDT (VDOT Link ID 090018 – Lucketts Road to the Maryland State Line)

2017 21,000
2016 19,000
2015 19,000
2014 18,000
2012 18,000

Note, AAWDT for the lower part of the corridor in 2017 was 26,000 weekday vehicle trips.

Vehicle growth continues on Route 15. There are no shoulders or widening proposed north of the Village of Lucketts. There is neither a timeline nor funding for the concept designs that are proposed north of Montresor Road. We will have to wait 10 years before we have four lanes from Battlefield Parkway to (or beyond) Montresor Road (only 3.5 miles). Imagine what the weekday vehicle trips will be in 10 years.
