The Virginia Department of Transportation installed a new signal display at the intersection of Braddock Road and Ravensworth Road last week to make it easier to turn left onto Ravensworth.
Up to now, drivers heading eastbound on Braddock trying to turn left on Ravensworth toward central Annandale could only do so if they had a green arrow or solid green light. Drivers turning left on a solid green light sometimes do not yield to oncoming traffic, which has resulted in crashes at this intersection.
