Gilbert's Corner Roundabout Construction Proceeding

According to the Loudoun Times, "Construction on four roundabouts on U.S. 50 continues to move forward, said Kenny Robinson of the Virginia Department of Transportation. The first roundabouts at Watson Road opened three weeks ago."

"The next phase for the project will reverse the road closure at Gilberts Corner in June, which means U.S. 15 will be open to traffic while U.S. 50 is closed at the intersection. Gilberts Corner will be closed to U.S. 50 traffic in June, July and August. Traffic instead will take a temporary detour road to enter or cross U.S. 15."

The Times reports the roundabout at Gilberts Corner is already about 30 percent done. And if everything goes as planned, all four roundabouts – costing $13.5 million – will be completed by the end of the year.
