Major updates to the intersection of Elden Street and Monroe Street have neared substantial completion.
At a Herndon Town Council meeting last night (Tuesday), Town Manager Bill Ashton said the project is mostly complete. Signals have been installed and are expected to be fully functional in the coming days.
The project, which started late last year, reconstructs the intersection and includes a new traffic signal, brick crosswalks with ADA-compliant curb ramps, brick sidewalks, and an updated curb return in the southeast quadrant of the intersection.
Concrete-encased conduits for Cox, Verizon, and Dominion Power are also planned on the site.
“We are hopeful that in the coming weeks we’re able to complete that project in earnest,” Ashton said.
The project has changed traffic flows for several months in the area, particularly in front of Anita’s. Once the traffic signal goes live, much of the “ugly hardware” in the area will be removed, according to Ashton.
Ashburn Construction Corporation beat out one other bidder last spring to win the $1.1 million contract for the project.
The project is expected to officially close out by the summer.
Streetscape improvements to Elden Street — running in front of Aslin Beer Co. — are also nearly complete, Ashton said.
A sanitary sewer installation has also been added in front of Aslin in order to support Comstock’s anticipated redevelopment of downtown Herndon.
Comstock plans to ensure the infrastructure was installed properly. The company anticipates breaking ground this spring on the mixed-use project.
