IT’S OFFICIAL: CLAIBORNE PARKWAY RIBBON CUTTING JANUARY 9

It’s official. The long-awaited opening of the final stretch of Claiborne Parkway in Ashburn will take place next Wednesday, January 9.

The confirmation came this morning along with an invitation for the public to join county and local officials at the event (see below). It will take place at 8:30 a.m. Per the instructions, you will actually drive down the new roadway to reach the ceremony site.

The road will open to regular traffic sometime after the ribbon cutting, providing a major new north-south corridor between Brambleton and the rest of Ashburn.
