Loudoun County Procurement announced a short-list of companies for the Route 50 and Trailhead Drive Roundabout design-build contract on February 1, 2020. A request for proposals (RFP) was released on March 15, 2021 and a design-builder award of contract announcement is estimated for fall 2021.

Land acquisition and utility relocation will follow the completion of the design process, currently estimated for spring 2023. 

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.
