The Route 50 and Trailhead Drive Roundabout Project has reached the 90% design phase, according to the design-build project team. During this phase, the design plans are completed and sent for review to the permitting and funding organization.
The Right of Way phase will follow the completion of the design process, currently estimated for spring 2023. More information about Loudoun County Capital Projects and phases is provided at loudoun.gov/capitalprojects.
The Route 50 and Trailhead Drive roundabout is intended to improve traffic operations and control operating speeds along Route 50 at this intersection. 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 to enable 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.
