Reconfiguration of Sterling Road in Herndon gears up for federal funding

A small portion of Sterling Road will be reconfigured (via Town of Herndon)

The Town of Herndon is gearing up to seek federal funding for a reconfiguration of Sterling Road.

The project would reconfigure the existing road between Herndon Parkway and Elden Street from three undivided lanes to two lanes with a middle lane for turning. A landscaped median is also planned for the project.

Staff is currently seeking the Herndon Town Council’s permission to incorporate the project in the 2030 Comprehensive Plan in order to secure funding for the project. The project was discussed at a meeting last week.

Town Mayor Sheila Olem noted that the project is in its early phases. A design concept has not yet been proposed.

“This is exciting. We have been working on this for a few long time,” Olem said.

The amendment would also incorporate the town’s bicycle and pedestrians plans — both adopted in 2019 — into the comprehensive plan.

The proposal also includes meshing complete street policies — a design approach that requires streets to be designed and planned to enable safe travel for all users — into the comprehensive plan.

The town’s Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the proposed change, followed by a public hearing by the Herndon Town Council. Dates for both hearings have not been determined yet.
