Loudoun County Parkway begins at Braddock Road in South Riding and continues north across U.S. Route 50. The parkway continues north along the western boundary of Washington Dulles International Airport to the intersection of Old Ox Road. The road now goes north towards Loudoun Valley Estates in Ashburn, VA. The parkway then heads north towards Ryan Road.Progress Report on Loudoun County Parkway by Ron Shaffer, July 21, 2005, The Washington Post Retrieved July 16, 2010</ref>

Brambleton and Ashburn[edit]

Loudoun County Parkway resumes at the intersection of Evergreen Ridge Drive south of Ryan Road a few miles south of the Dulles Greenway. The parkway heads north over the Greenway, and past the Verizon campus. After crossing Waxpool Road, the parkway continues north through corporate centers and Redskins Park. This section was once called Panorama Parkway. Until 2006, the section from Smith Switch Road to State Route 7 was an unpaved dirt road, but was rebuilt in 2006 as a four-lane divided highway as part of the Route 28 Improvement Project. As of 2012, Smith Switch Road no longer intersects directly with Loudoun County Parkway; instead it runs into the extension eastward of Gloucester Parkway that intersects Loudoun County Parkway.
