Posted on September 17, 2020 at 11:30 AM by Heidi Kellum

Members of the public will notice three Portable Changeable Message Signs (PCMS) in Round Hill indicating that water line relocation construction for the Round Hill to Franklin Park Trail project will begin on E. Loudoun Street Monday, September 21, 2020. The signs are located on E. Loudoun Street in front of the Sheriff’s Building, west of Round Hill in the northeast corner of Evening Star Drive, and on the northwest corner of Main Street and Evening Star Drive. 

In addition, clearing and grubbing is almost complete at Lakefield Road to Franklin Park Arts Center Parking lot. Sediment and Erosion Control Measures will now be installed at this location.

This project will construct a shared-use path that will link the center of Round Hill to Franklin Park, this link will consist of concrete sidewalks along both sides of E. Loudoun Street to Main Street to the location of the former W&OD railroad station. Additional Main Street enhancements and E. Loudoun Street include curbs, curb ramps, retaining walls and a new storm drainage system. When the project is completed, pedestrian connectivity between Round Hill and Franklin Park will be established, and pedestrian access and safety along East Loudoun Street and Main Street will be improved.
