Dominion Energy is planning to replace conductor on a 230 kV electric transmission line located along the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail in Loudoun County near the town of Ashburn. This work is necessary to maintain electric reliability and will temporarily impact users of the W&OD Trail.
A section of the W&OD Trail will be closed Monday, Oct. 18, 2021, through Friday, Oct. 22, 2021, with a contingency schedule of Monday, Oct. 25, 2021, through Friday, Oct. 29, 2021. The trail will be closed between Loudoun County Parkway to just east of Claiborne Parkway (approx. 3.6 miles). During this time the trail will be detoured along Loudoun County Pkwy, Gloucester Pkwy and Claiborne Pkwy. Pedestrian trail users my use the roadside multiuse trail and bicyclist may use the road or multiuse trail which is continuous along the detour route. Detour signage will be provided.
