Route 50 Project Update

According to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the contractor for the roundabouts project at Gilbert's Corner has been working to finish the final pavement course resulting in some delays in the off peak time between morning and evening rush hour. The contractor is also building up the shoulders and preparing the slopes for seeding.

Kenny Robinson, VDOT Route 50 Corridor Program Manager, reports that the landscaping is underway and "we hope to have it all in place by Thanksgiving." Furthermore, the lighting contractor is still working on getting all the poles up and conduit in place. And work is still underway to get all the new signs up. Guardrails also have been installed.

Robinson adds that drivers need to remember to yield to traffic already in the circle and to be careful of other drivers that fail to yield.

VDOT should be ready to cut the ribbon on this project shortly after Thanksgiving.
