  • 3526 King Street Alexandria, VA - Fairlington-Bradlee
    During the morning rush, the timing of the traffic light combination on north bound Quaker Lane when you cross W Braddock Road and King Street changed a few weeks to a month ago. I believe both the lights are now on less time letting north bound Quaker Lane traffic through. I know for sure the light when crossing King St. (especially the left turn light from Quaker to King West) is on less time. This is causing north bound Quaker to back up significantly each weekday morning. Just in the last couple of weeks, the signal cycle is taking 4-8 times, when before it was 1-3. All that is needed is to reset the timing of the lights (maybe just the King Street light is needed).
  • George Washington Memorial Pkwy Arlington, VA - Arlington
  • Harrison Street And Washington Blvd Arlington, VA 22205, USA - Tara-Leeway Heights
    The intersection of Washington Blvd and Harrison Street in Arlington VA has become a huge danger. We need to install a light that is timed like the ones on Harrison St and Yorktown that senses when traffic arrives at the intersection (the least trafficked road - Harrison in this case) the light allows them to go but quickly changes back to red to keep the flow on Washington Blvd going.
  • U.S. 29 Arlington, VA 22209, USA - Arlington
    Green bike route sign at this corner is tagged with black marker/paint graffiti.
  • Columbia Pike And George Mason Drive Arlington, VA - Barcroft
    I live in Arlington, feel good about where I am in life, but am routinely reminded about how much work I have left to do every time I see this brotha jumpin' around and talking to himself with that big silly hat on. I am actually convinced North Arlington Real Estate developers pay that cash hard cold cash to do his jig and drive the folks -no more willing than ever- to drive UP the road the overpay for the same pile of bricks and sticks we got on the Southie side. HELP!!!!!!!!!
  • Wislon Boulevard arlington, VA - Ashton Heights
    Can someone install more fencing in the median along the road outside of Ballston Mall? People are constantly running in to traffic to cross the street!
  • 2100 North Quincy Street Arlington, VA - Cherrydale

    After the re-striping of the lanes near this light, traffic queues up for 3-4 light cycles on N Quincy.

    There is not enough green time on Quincy (heading towards Military) to clear this queue and the wait can be up to 2-4 cycles (with each one being almost 3 minutes).

  • 3227-3251 Washington Blvd Arlington, VA 22201, USA - Lyon Village
    Road in bad shape. Restriping necessary. And lane ID lights need to be bright enough so that you can see them in the setting sun.
  • Pothole Archived
    S 31st Street Arlington , VA - Fairlington-Shirlington
    There is an enormous pothole that is impossible to avoid hitting because it is adjacent to a speed table on 31st street. I'm afraid it will do damage to my car each time I run over it.
  • Army Navy Dr Arlington, VA - Arlington
    I travel up and down Army Navy Drive as part of my daily commute. Recently the timing of the lights has changed, causing me to sit and wait through two full lights, adding nearly five minutes to my commute. Previous to this change, if you made the first light and traveled the speed limit, you would make green lights all the way to 395. Coming home on the same street means the same wait time. It makes no sense.
  • N Fort Myer Dr Arlington, VA 22201, USA - Arlington
  • George Washington Memorial Parkway Arlington, Virginia - Arlington
    The GW Parkway South is great until you get under the 14th St. bridge. Then it becomes extremely rough with a lot of currently shallow potholes. These have the potential to get much worse.
