The primary purpose of this project is improve safety and traffic flow at the intersection of Route 311 and Route 419 in Roanoke County at Hanging Rock by replacing the signalized intersection with a roundabout.
Significant congestion occurs at this intersection during peak travel times. As of 2016, approximately 14,000 vehicles use this intersection each day.
Constructing a roundabout can enhance safety, improve traffic flow and cost less to build and maintain when compared to traditional intersections.
In addition to the roundabout, the project also includes the following improvements:
- Improving and resurfacing the nearby park and ride lot
- Adding paved shoulders for bicycle use
- Constructing pedestrians crosswalks to connect to the Hanging Rock Battlefield Trail
