Lack of State Funding Apparently Won't Stop County Road Projects

The Loudoun Times reports that even as state transportation coffers dwindle, county leaders on May 10 approved a list of secondary road projects to be funded mainly by past resources.
"Despite the news that Loudoun will receive a mere $1,024 for fiscal 2011-2016 from the state, people living near roads slated for improvements were elated that supervisors still would move forward with plans.

"Residents who live near roads scheduled for improvements in the upcoming year turned out in droves at a May 10 public hearing to support the supervisors’ decision to keep their area on the list.

"County leaders had previously placed paving for Sands Road in Hamilton and The Woods Road near Leesburg on the state’s Six-Year Improvement Plan, but later removed the projects because of a lack of funding. They’re back on the plan now."
Roads, projects slated for improvement
•  The paving of Pacific Boulevard between Dresden Street and Relocation Drive in Sterling
• The intersection of Evergreen Mills Road and Ryan Road in Brambleton
• A bridge replacement on Gleedsville Road, southeast of Leesburg
• Completion of the design to pave Edwards Ferry Road near Leesburg
•  The paving of Sands and Taylor roads in Hamilton and The Woods Road near Leesburg.
