The Route 50 and Trailhead Drive (VA 3395) Roundabout project calls for constructing a roundabout at this intersection to improve traffic operations. The US Route 50 and Trailhead Drive intersection has a significant amount of traffic accidents. High speed approaches and heavy volumes create conditions where substandard geometrics contribute to frequent crashes due to motorists overdriving conditions. The roundabout will include two westbound lanes to provide for left turning and through/right turning traffic. The northbound approach from Trailhead Drive will include a bypass lane to eastbound Route 50. The roundabout will be constructed as a hybrid roundabout, with provisions for future expansion.
The major elements of the project include design and construction of the roundabout, stormwater management, drainage improvements and roadway lighting within the roundabout. This project is locally funded.
