Round Hill Ready to Begin Street/Trail Projects

The Town of Round Hill will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the commencement of its Main Street Enhancement & Franklin Park Trail projects at 4 p.m. Tuesday, July 28 at the Town Park at 3 E Loudoun St.

The project includes the design and construction of sidewalks and a shared use path from the center of town to Franklin Park, and in-town work on the pedestrian and streetscape network, which the county will manage. That in-town work will include the construction of a concrete sidewalk along the east side of Main Street, a curb on both sides of the street, curb ramps, small retaining walls and storm drainage improvements.

The trail project is funded with local taxes and a Federal Highway Administration grant. The street enhancement project is funded through a separate Federal Highway Administration grant along with county and town funding.

According to the Loudoun County website, the county’s procurement team has yet to select a contractor to perform the construction of both projects. Construction is expected to start in summer 2020 and complete by spring 2022.
