Didn't know they were trying to address this intersection...thanks for the post.

As far as solutions, it would be nice to somehow block access out to South Riding. The back-ups got much worse with the expansion of the community out there.

Knowing they can't really do that, I'd prefer a stoplight. We'd be asking too much of NoVa drivers to learn how to drive in a roundabout...

My thoughts were:

a) the 3 roundabouts installed the last few years on Route 50 work well. People learned how to use them.

b) roundabouts would be much preferred during non-rush hour - most of the time there is no traffic and having to stop for a light would be an unnecessary annoyance.

There are two more, rather lenghty articles here (complete with photos.)

Although the intersection is in Fairfax, it seems the cost of the roundabout is being borne by Loudoun County!
