The Town of Herndon is considering plans to reconfigure a new traffic signal along Herndon Parkway at Sunset Park Drive in order to access Sunset Business Park.
In the town’s proposed capital improvement program for fiscal years 2022 through 2027, the town is considering realigning the current intersection to include new street lighting, signals for bikes and pedestrians, crosswalks, and cycle tracks.
The changes are expected to improve the safety of the area and traffic circulation between Herndon Parkway and Sunset Business Park.
So far, roughly 75,000 in funding from the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority has been allocated for preliminary engineering and administrative tasks. The project is expected to cost at least 700,000.
Future funding will likely be received through the Virginia Department of Transportation’s revenue sharing program. Construction is expected to be completed in fiscal year 2025.
Because of limited funding due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the town has preliminary identified four priority projects for funding, including minor sidewalks, trails and bicycle facility improvements, the replacement of a fuel tank in the town shop, and the expansion of a police service room.
The town’s Planning Commission is set to review the proposal at a meeting on Feb. 22.
