$300,000 TRAIL BEING CONSTRUCTED IN STERLING'S PARK

 

The Claude Moore Park Access Trail Project is currently underway. McGee Civil Construction out of Purcellville is the contractor. One entrance is planned at Church Road by the Sterling Elementary School.

To date, storm water pipes and the piping under the road at the 90 degree turn have been installed as well as the clearing of necessary areas for the trail installation. Silt fencing and flagging currently identify where the trail will be located along Loudoun Park Lane.

Although the snow and freezing temperatures have slowed down the project slightly, this project is still on track to be completed this Spring. When the project is completed, there will be a paved path from Cascades Parkway, all the way along Loudoun Park Lane and out the back pedestrian entrance next to Park View High School. In addition, there will be a packed gravel walkway along the blue trail from Church Road (including a new crosswalk) to the rear of the Claude Moore Recreation Center. These trails will allow for easier and safer access to the many recreational amenities found within Claude Moore Park. Thank you to our Sterling Park Commissioner Chris Nicholson for this report.
