It will also widen the southeast quadrant of the intersection to accom- modate the offset turn lane in an effort to improve the sight distance for vehicles turning from Route 208 and assist southbound Route 522 motorists to discern whether oncoming traffic is turning or traveling straight through the intersection. Additionally VDOT plans to install advance warning signs on Route 522 to alert motorists of the upcom- ing intersection as well as install a stop ahead sign and two-direction arrow sign on Route 208 just east of the intersection alerting drivers to prepare to stop and look for oncoming traf- fic in both directions. Towsey does not feel this is enough. I feel like a stop light and reduced speed is the most common sense approach to the problems. Although all safety improvements are welcomed the current VDOT recommendations are based on the study com- pleted back in 2010. A stop light will make the traffic flow so much easier says Towsey. Ash Dickinson is a third generation owner of Dick- insons Store. He and his family have several con- cerns not only for his pa- trons and business but for continued from 7 all local businesses as well. I want visitors to the area to feel safe so they will come back. says Dicken- son. We need to control the flow of traffic and right now it is very disorganized. Many drivers cut through our parking lot to try to save time at the intersection and this honestly makes it very challenging at times. I want my customers and em- ployees to feel comfortable. We need a traffic light. Ive witnessed too many acci- dents. Growth in the Lake Anna area is on a constant in- crease. The problems at the Wares Crossroads intersec- tion as well as other heavily traveled areas around Lake Anna are not going away. In an effort to spread word of the communites concern with safety Schweikart created a Face Book page called BringaLighttoRt 208Rt522. With over 400 followers this page has been a sounding board for information and concern. Local resident Donny Em- bry is quoted as saying Its just putting a Band-Aid on a bullet wound referring to VDOTs current plans. This seems to be a consensus of many folks around the lake. What do you think You can make your concerns known by contacting Rob- ert Strevell with VDOT at 540 829-7546. - Tina Schweikart VDOT Residency Administrator Joel DeNunzio with the realignment plan for Wares Cross- roads during a recent public meeting.
