Loudoun County is hosting an online meeting to gain input from the public on the Route 50 and Trailhead Drive (Route 3395) roundabout. The public information meeting will be held Thursday, December 17, 2020, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. Members of the public are invited to join the virtual meeting to learn, ask questions and provide input about the project, which will construct a roundabout at this intersection.
Login information and meeting materials are available for review at here at loudoun.gov/rt50trailheadroundaboutmeeting and loudoun.gov/remoteparticipation. Meeting materials include a concept design, speaker sign-up form and a comment form. Members of the public must sign up in advance to ask questions during the event by 12:00 p.m., Wednesday, December 16, 2020. Online participants may also send questions to the project team as chat messages, which will be answered during the meeting as time allows.
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 so as 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.
