Burning Quesiton: Have you ever noticed the intersection of Creighton Rd and Northstar Boulevard (in Ashburn) has two different spellings for Northstar on two different street signs? I always thought it was Northstar Boulevard, but have we all been getting it wrong this whole time?
The answer to your questions, C.G. , are no and no. We have never spotted that before —kudos on being so observant — and also no, you have not been getting it wrong the whole time.
We reached out to Susan Glass with Loudoun County’s Department of Transportation. She assures us that Northstar — one word — is the correct spelling of Northstar Boulevard.
Glass said it’s possible the incorrect street sign was installed by one of the community developers in the area. She was going to follow up and see that it get corrected.
