Board of Supervisors Approves Preferred Location for Section of Shaw Road

According to the Loudoun Independent, by a 7-0-2 vote, the "Loudoun County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution regarding the preferred location of the northern east-west section of Shaw Road in the Belfort Park area of Sterling between Church Road and Sterling Boulevard, adjacent to Route 28. Supervisors also agreed to forward the adopted resolution to the Loudoun County Planning Commission for consideration in the commission review of the draft 2009 Countywide Transportation Plan (CTP). Supervisors acted to assure planning commissioners are aware of the board’s desired alignment and vision for that segment of Shaw Road near the county owned Old Sterling Annex property."

The paper added, "The impetus for the change in alignment and scale of roadway comes as a result of the work of the Belfort Park Task Force—formed in 2008 by Loudoun supervisors to address land use and transportation issues with the mixed use residential, retail and commercial area alongside Route 28 from Sterling Boulevard to Church Road."
