We need more enforceable traffic calmings in our neighborhoods, specifically Canterbury Woods where cut-throughs to NOVA and access to Braddock Road endanger our kids getting to school. We keep being told that this is a very complex issue, involving mainly insufficient funds and/ or manpower. While I realize it's not so cut-and-dry, wouldn't more stop signs (and the subsequent funds generated from the ridiculous amount of tickets police could issue) help solve both the speeding and the lack of county funds? If not, PLEASE offer a tangible, concrete, measureable solution to the neighborhood speeding problem.
Very aware of this area. Some traffic calming is in place - two four-way stop signs on Woodland Way, for example. Very heavy traffic in part due to more enrollment at NOVA. We continue to discuss various traffic calming measures and will work with the Canterbury Woods, Stone Haven, and other civic associations on more measures. State funding for traffic calming ended about two years ago for budget reasons. (Remember these are state roads, not county roads.) I have asked the Board of Supervisors to commit $200,000 in the upcoming Carryover budget toward traffic calming, and am hopeful the Board will agree. I also hope with the new state transportation bill we will see renewed funding for traffic calming measures in the future.
