One of our neighbors received the following reply from our County Supervisor:
Thanks for your email and the attached letter.
As the Sterling District representative, the safety and wellbeing of Sterling residents is a top priority for my office. We certainly heard the community’s feedback and concerns loud and clear when we met a few months back. Based on the feedback that has been received, the removal of the traffic signal and implementation of a right in-right out access point has been removed from the proposal.
County staff and engineers for the Route 7 project are currently working to reevaluate the intersection and develop new proposals to present to the Cardinal Glen community. As I have expressed to other Cardinal Glen residents who have reached out on this issue, once staff has developed new options to consider, we will indeed follow up with the community. However, please understand that this will take time as this project is a Countywide undertaking that will not happen overnight, and we are only in the beginning stages. Rest assured that when the time comes to present alternatives, we will be in contact with the community.
Thank you again for your email and for expressing your concerns.

Please sign our online Change.Org petition and share with as many people as you can via both email and social media.
With this project moving quickly, your action is needed so that our neighborhood can give a full representation of our opposition to the Board of Supervisor’s proposal.

lots of our neighbors were enjoying our sledding hill, but don’t forget: county law requires sidewalks to be shoveled before 12:00 noon following the night in which the snow or ice, or combination thereof, has fallen…
Just now, Chair Phyllis Randall led a press conference to update the County on steps being taken to ensure the safety of residents as we deal with this situation. If you missed the press conference you can find it on the county’s website at loudoun.gov/webcast and on the Loudoun County Government’s page on Facebook.
