Dangerous intersection gets new safeguards
Who got it done: D.C. Department of Transportation
How long to fix: 4 months
Griper Adam Hall complained months ago about a particularly dangerous intersection in D.C.: New Jersey Ave. and I Street SE.
"Because of the wide lanes, traffic often exceeds the speed limit. Since there are no painted lines preventing parking near the corners, visibility is severely limited, resulting in many near-misses. Finally, missing or faded crosswalk lines endanger pedestrians. Please add stop signs in all directions and repaint cosswalk and parking lines!"
At the end of May, the city made some progress toward resolving the problem: Crews repainted the crosswalk at the intersection (among others in the area). Two days ago, Hall reported the city had installed stop signs at the intersection, making it safer.
