Project Description: The purpose of this project was to upgrade the deteriorated storm system and improve drainage conditions in this area.  The need for the improvements was originally identified in a study prepared in 1975.  The project included:

  • Improvements to the storm drainage ditches at the Loudoun County ballfields between Old Waterford Road and Wirt Street.
  • New storm drainage pipes along Union Street between Wirt Street and North King Street, including replacement of the curb and gutter and brick sidewalk along the south side of the street.  
  • Replacement of the existing storm drainage system along North King Street between North Street and Union Street, including replacement and upgrade of the waterline and replacement of the curb and gutter and brick sidewalk.  
  • New storm drainage pipe from North King Street connecting to an existing storm drainage system near the Loudoun County Pennington parking lot.  
  • Extension of the storm drain system, curb and gutter and brick sidewalk along the west side of North King Street between Union Street and Union Cemetery.  Also, an asphalt trail was constructed adjacent to Union Cemetery connecting the new sidewalk with the trail at Ida Lee Park.

The existing storm drainage system along King Street north of the downtown area was old and undersized and residential properties along Wirt Street and North King Street often remained wet after storms.  This project was constructed to improve drainage conditions in the area.

Project Status:  This project was completed in October 2010.
