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.

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.

Work began in late April and will be completed in late fall 2022.  

August through November

The new roundabout opened to traffic July 15. However, drivers should still expect nighttime lane closures with flaggers between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., Sunday through Thursday around the roundabout for final paving, pavement marking and sign installation. Drivers should use caution as work may be performed during daytime hours as needed. 

VDOT awarded the $2.4 million contract to contractor E.C. Pace from Roanoke in February.  


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.
