Appearances Aside, No New Stop Signs Coming to North Shore Drive-Temporary Road Intersection

Following paving on North Shore Drive, the appearance of stop lines at the intersection with Temporary Road had residents believing a three-way stop was coming soon.

It turns out, however, that is not the case.

Jennifer McCord, media relations specialist for the Virginia Department of Transportation, tells Reston Now the lines were painted on the road “erroneously” and will soon be removed.

“There is no stop sign going in with the repaving,” McCord said. “[The lines] are scheduled to be removed next week.”

More than once this year on Reston Now, readers have commented about their desire to see something done about what they feel is a dangerous intersection.

  • Jim Suh

    Is a roundabout under consideration for this intersection?

    • 30yearsinreston

      Roundabouts on T junctions dont work well
      It would be a good idea

  • 30yearsinreston

    Vehicles turning right onto North shore obscure vehicles from those making left turns
    This is an accident waiting to happen

    Wheres Ken Plum hiding
    He should get off his fat butt and do something for constituents

    • Richard

      Again with Ken Plum? What does the state legislature have to do with erroneous street markings in Reston? Do you need him to walk your dogs too?

      • 40yearsinreston

        So VDOT won’t listen to a state legislator ?
        If something was done, he would be in front trying to get credit

  • CaptainObvious

    Is there really a serious problem at the intersection requiring either Stop sign/s or roundabout??

    • TL;DR

      Of coarse any new signage will need to be bi-lingual (Spanish/English)

  • Arielle in NoVA

    It can be a tricky intersection. Stop signs or a roundabout would be a good idea there.

    • Ask Ken

      Round about for great Britons

      Stop sign for awful Americans.
