A design public hearing was held on Thursday, March 29 in Roanoke.
The primary purpose of this project was to 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.
As of 2016, approximately 14,000 vehicles use this intersection each day with significant congestion occurring during peak travel times. Constructing a roundabout can enhance safety, improve traffic flow and cost less to build and maintain when compared to traditional intersections.
The new roundabout opened to traffic July 15 and completed the end of 2022.
The contractor was E.C. Pace from Roanoke.
This project proposes to construct a roundabout that will enhance safety, improve traffic flow and cost less to build and maintain. The project will also improve and resurface the nearby park and ride lot, add paved shoulders for bicycle use and pedestrians crosswalks to connect to the Hanging Rock Battlefield Trail.
