Progress is Made on the Design for the Route 9 and 287 Roundabout Project

Posted on May 13, 2020 at 9:33 AM by Heidi Kellum

In January 2020, Loudoun County’s design consultant delivered 60% design plans and a Floodplain Report to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the County’s Department of Building and Development for review. 

Feedback from the review has been received and provided to Loudoun County’s design consultant to be incorporated into the 90% roadway design plans, estimated for completion by early summer 2020.

Board of Supervisors Endorses Route 9 / 287 Roundabout Intersection Improvements

Posted on October 4, 2019 at 10:11 AM by Nancy McCormick

On October 2, 2019, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors formally endorsed a design plan for a roundabout at the intersection of VA Route 9 and VA Route  287. 

The Virginia Department of Transportation analyzed the intersection in 2014 to develop design alternatives to reduce traffic delays. The alternatives included a two-lane roundabout, a one-lane roundabout and additional turn lanes to upgrade the intersection.

Contractor Wallace Montgomery performed traffic analyses and developed a design which will construct a hybrid roundabout. The hybrid design incorporates two lanes in the eastbound/westbound direction and one lane in the northbound/southbound direction. Six-tenths of a mile of Routes 9 and 287 which approach the roundabout will be widened.

Animated traffic model videos of roundabout movements during morning and evening peak travel hours have been posted to the project webpage on the county website.
