Road worries

I was so excited to see a temporary barrier up at the intersection of Powhatan Secondary and News roads this week. It was to prevent people traveling west on News Road from passing cars on the right who were turning left into Powhatan Secondary. Hours later, this barrier was gone. Whoever put it up has the right idea because people fly past cars illegally every day, endangering the people turning into The Colonies. The neighborhood HOA should formally request a Virginia Deparment of Transportation study in hopes of making that area safer.

Who says VDOT doesn't have the traffic lights synchronized through Lightfoot? Had to stop at every one of 'em!
