Loudoun County and Town of Round Hill officials gathered to celebrate the start of construction of both the long-anticipated trail between the Town of Round Hill and Franklin Park, and the town’s Main Street Enhancements project on July 28, 2020. 

Members of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors and Round Hill Town Council were among those on hand Tuesday for a ceremonial groundbreaking, kicking off a construction project that will bring increased pedestrian connectivity and safety improvements to parts of western Loudoun.

The project will construct sidewalks and a shared-use path that will link the center of Round Hill to Franklin Park, and concrete sidewalks along both sides of Main Street from Loudoun Street to the location of the former W&OD railroad station. Additional Main Street enhancements 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. 

Construction is expected to be completed in spring 2022. The budget for this project is $7.04 million.
