  • S Glebe At W Glebe Rd Arlington, va - Long Branch Creek
    In the afternoon/evening, it take a long time to get through the light at the exit of 7a of 395. This seems to be due in part to the weird traffic light sequence at S/W Glebe split. The light is often red when the exit traffic light is green which results in many people blocking the box as it takes so long to get off of the exit.
  • 5801 5835 N Washington Blvd Arlington, VA 22205, USA - Westover Village
    My friend's foot was gashed really bad yesterday when walking in Westover down Washington Blvd. at Longfellow St. at bus stop #6000559.
  • Custis Trail Arlington, Virginia - North Rosslyn

    A stop sign was posted about a year ago on the custis trail at the parking lot exit from the Marriott Hotel onto Lee Highway. This is a sidewalk/trail and a driveway exit...not a place where a stop sign can legally be required for pedestrians/cyclists. It's also unclear if the Arlington County is responsible for posting this sign to begin with. Cars coming out of that exit must to yield to pedestrians/bicycles and placing a stop sign on the trail only helps to legitimize failure to yield behavior from drivers. It's also unclear - is the stop sign for all trail users or just bikes? A similar stop sign at Custis Trail and Scott street was removed for this same reason.

    Better yet, Arlington County should consider removing that exit from the hotel altogether. It has poor sight-lines for all users and there has been more than one crash there, especially given that drivers entering onto Lee Highway often fail to look right for foot/bicycle traffic due to the one-way nature of Lee Highway. Traffic can easily exit the Marriott parking lot (including large buses) through the existing Ft. Meyer Drive entrance/exit.

  • S Walter Reed Dr Arlington, VA - Penrose
    The merge from S. Walter Reed Drive to Washington Blvd heading towards DC is terrible. I've complained about it before. There's a wreck here probably monthly. I was hit from behind this week by a car that was looking back at oncoming traffic and didn't see I wasn't out of her way yet. Please add a light or something. Traffic from Washington Blvd and Arlington Blvd merge at this same point all doing 50+ MPH and it is a total mess.
  • 1505 Quinn Street Arlington, VA - Radnor-Ft Myer Heights
    The tree adjacent to Rahill Apartments is overgrown and contacting the roof and chimney. This is already a fire hazard and will become a worse collision hazard with the approaching hurricane season. A tree branch fell today on 16th street contacting a power line and hitting a car. The trees in this area are in need of maintenance and trimming where they contact power lines and rooftops.
  • Gw Parkway Arlington, VA - Ballston-Virginia Square
    GW Parkway, from Key Bridge to Chain Bridge needs complete re-paving. Pothole fixes for the past 3+ years aren't solving the problem.
  • Intersection Beside Weta Arlington, VA - Clarendon-Courthouse
    The intersection beside WETA where traffic coming from Four Mile Run direction have to yield to traffic in the circle moving towards SHirlington. This intersection is so dangerous and I have had several near misses in the last week alone. People consistently ignore the yield sign and do not look to the left when they enter the circle. Because of the design, it may appear that they have their own lane. I think the county needs to install large yield signs on both sides of the street. Also, they should do traffic enforcement and write tickets there from 5pm through 8pm.
  • 4401-4489 N Lorcom Ln Arlington, VA 22207, USA - Waverly Hills
    Right turners from Lorcom Lane to Lee Hwy have their own lane to turn into. However, cars traveling west on Lee Hwy constantly cross solid line into the that lane. I have never seen that law enforced and there have been accidents there. The county should put up pole dividers to disallow crossing the solid line
  • 2245-2251 N Vermont St Arlington, VA 22207, USA - Donaldson Run
    The construction company repaving Lee Hwy drove its paving equipment down Vermont St. To park it overnight and damaged Vermont Street by leaving hardened globs of asphalt along the way. It appears it may be possible to scrape off these globs but that hasn't happened yet.
  • 3138 10th Street N Arlington, VA - Lyon Park
    10th St N & Irving St. there is a crosswalk which NO cars ever observe. There are clearly marked fines for cars but every single time I use this crosswalk I am in fear for my life. Everyone I know who uses this feels the same way. It is time we get lights or something else!
  • 4035 Old Dominion Dr Arlington, VA - Cherrydale

    At the Rt 29 / Military&Quincy intersection, the left turn movement has been modified in such a way that cars must now turn in front of each other. The previous format was cars turning after they passed each other in the intersection. The new format is unsafe. The respective north and south points on Military/Quincy are too far away from the corresponding east and west lanes on Rt 29.

    It's near impossible to make a left turn from Military to Rt 29 E when traffic turning left from Quincy to Rt 29 W.

  • U.S. 50 Arlington, VA 22204, USA - Arlington Forest
    This crosswalk is not lit with a nearby streetlight. Saw a pedestrian almost struck by turning vehicle. Other crosswalks nearby have suitable lighting.
