The detour for pedestrians, runners and bicyclists is the Creighton Road trail to the Olympia Drive sidewalk to the Brambleton Town Center to Northstar Blvd. Vehicular traffic shall use Creighton Road to Belmont Ridge Road to Ryan Road for their detour. Please note that there is no outlet to Northstar Blvd. from Majestic Knolls Drive and Emerald Chase Place, and the underpass is also closed.
Our office works closely with the Developer’s office to include information in the Friday Flash; however, with the unpredictable pace of these activities, it is not always possible.
