Construction to start soon on Ravensworth roundabout

Construction on the “modular mini roundabout” on Ravensworth Road at the intersection of Jayhawk Street and Fountainhead Drive in Annandale is expected to begin in mid-May.

The roundabout is a pilot project that is expected to improve traffic flow through the intersection, deter speeding, and improve pedestrian safety. The project was initially supposed to be implemented last summer. There was a community meeting on it in June 2017.

The project is funded by the Federal Highway Administration and will be maintained by the Virginia Department of Transportation. The roundabout will be constructed of recycled composite materials and could be removed if an evaluation shows it isn’t effective.

Construction will take approximately three weeks, with the work taking place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. During that period, drivers can expect detours and delays.  


  1. VDOT must have found their thinking cap!

  2. This one roundabout has been in the works for years, it seems. About time.
