Loudoun County and the Town of Round Hill invite members of the public to attend a groundbreaking ceremony for the start of construction of the Round Hill to Franklin Park trail and the Main Street enhancement project Tuesday, July 28, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. The event will take place outside, in front of the pavilion at 3 East Loudoun Street in Round Hill. Limited parking is available behind the Round Hill fire station at 4 Main Street.
Members of the Board of Supervisors and Round Hill Town Council are scheduled to be on hand for the ceremonial breaking of ground, 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.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Loudoun County will adhere to physical distancing and face covering protocols at this event.
