Loudoun County invites members of the public to attend a “pardon our dust” meeting for the Route 50 and Trailhead Drive Roundabout on Thursday, January 18, 2024, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m., at Arcola Elementary School, 41740 Tall Cedars Parkway, Aldie. At this meeting, the public will receive a broad overview of the project timeline and learn about the stages of construction.
This project will construct a roundabout at the intersection of Route 50 and Trailhead Drive (Route 3395) in Aldie. The traffic calming and congestion mitigation measures at this intersection include two westbound lanes to provide for separate left turn and through/right turn lanes. The northbound approach from Trailhead Drive will include a bypass lane to eastbound Route 50.
Originally planned in the early 2000s, the project represents the last major element of the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Route 50 Traffic Calming Corridor to be constructed. Completed projects along this corridor include the Gilberts Corner roundabouts, and the traffic calming elements in the village of Aldie, the Town of Middleburg and the village of Upperville.
More information, including a link to sign up for updates on the project, can be found on the Loudoun County website at loudoun.gov/route50trailheadroundabout.
