For those who wanna speed between Columbia Road and Euclid Street NW, there’s a new stoplight that’s about to come between you and the gas pedal.
The intersection of Fuller Street and 16th Street NW is about to get not only reds and greens, but also crossing signals. This will replace the cop and crossing guard of last year who shepherded kids across the intersection each morning and afternoon.
While travel time may be slower during non-school hours, the traffic light will be better than the cop, who usually parked in a traffic lane, and the crossing guard who held up traffic for longer then the light.
Oh and before you blow through the light, be aware, there is a camera watching you from one of the traffic light poles.
