Single Lane Closures Extended for Round Hill to Franklin Trail Project

Posted on October 20, 2021 at 9:27 AM by Heidi Kellum

On October 18, 2021, current one-lane closure hours on East Loudoun Street were extended from 3:30 p.m. to “dark” for the Round Hill to Franklin Park Trail project. The project includes the construction of sidewalks and a shared-use path (pedestrian and bicycle) from the center of the Town of Round Hill to Franklin Park in Western Loudoun County. The lane closure extension was granted by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Town of Round Hill to allow the contractor to complete storm drain work for the Round Hill to Franklin Park Trail project by November 19, 2021, weather permitting. 

Current one-lane closure hours are as follows:

  • East Loudoun Street: Monday to Friday - 9 a.m. to dark, and Saturday - 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Main Street:  Monday to Thursday - 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday - 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Saturday - 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Due to unanticipated utility conflicts, work to install storm drains on both East Loudoun Street and Main Street will continue for the next several weeks. Drivers should proceed with caution on East Loudoun Street and Main Street as temporary asphalt is being used to patch the storm water installation until final asphalt can be installed at the end of the project. 

In addition to storm water work, crews continue grading work at the Franklin Park Trail. The installation of culverts at stream crossings and dewatering devices along the ditch lines is nearing completion.

This project will construct a shared-use path that will link the center of Round Hill to Franklin Park. This link will include concrete sidewalks along both sides of E. Loudoun Street and 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.
