New pedestrian signal causing delays on N.Y. Ave.
Update (7:40 a.m.): DDOT spokeswoman Karyn LeBlanc told WTOP this morning that crews are adjusting the timing this morning to give inbound traffic more time, and traffic control officers are being deployed along the corridor to help with the flow of traffic. DDOT says it may take more than a day to find the correct balance needed to efficiently move pedestrians and traffic. Be alert that this may affect your commute home this afternoon.
Update (7 a.m.): I traveled through this intersection earlier this morning and was surprised when the green seemed to turn abruptly to red. Just stay aware if you're traveling through the intersection. According to the D.C. police Web site, there are three red light cameras at this intersection, so if the light changes quicker than you might be expecting you could get your picture taken. Not a fun way to start the morning!
Update (6:45 a.m.): Motorists are reporting delays in the vicinity. Kenilworth or Rhode Island avenues are alternate routes.
Original post:Trafficland reports that a new pedestrian signal was installed Wednesday on New York Avenue at Bladensburg Road. The new timing may slow inbound traffic. Be alert for delays in the area.
