Drivers on 9th St N are required to stop. Many drivers on the smaller Daniel street stop unnecessarily. It is time to change this to an official four-way stop intersection. Would be less confusing and safer.
Intersection Of 10th Street And Washington Blvd Arlington, VA
The pedestrian crosswalk signs were replaced in the spring to include a countdown. This is no longer working on the crosswalk signals in front of the ABC store or behind the Shell gas station. The crosswalk sign behind the Shell gas station does not light up at all when the pedestrian can walk (it is black, not lit).
There are also no street lights on this intersection when crossing 10th/Washington from Filmore Street. This is a dangerous intersection for pedestrians since drivers often run yellow/red lights to turn left from Washington Blvd. Not functioning crosswalk signals and a lack of lightning makes it even worse, especially since most people are walking home from work now in the dark.

When it rains, there are perhaps three sections of sidewalk in front of RiverHouse's James building that quickly get flooded. After it rains, the run-off from the sloped ground leaves behind a lot of mud. These sections of sidewalk essentially are impassable while it is raining, and sometimes for a few days afterwards.
One result is that pedestrians who wish to avoid getting their feet soaked, or shoes muddied, are forced into the street, which in this area is particularly unsafe.
Although the address for the James building is 1111 Army Navy Drive, it actually is located on S. Joyce Street just south of that intersection. The stretch of sidewalk runs toward 1400 S. Joyce Street, where RiverHouse's Potomac building is located.
I understand that the County of Arlington is responsible for maintaining this sidewalk. I'm not sure if RiverHouse might be responsible for the run-off coming from the slope of the ground next to the sidewalk.

Old Dominion Dr, between Glebe and Williamsburg (and beyond) is dangerously narrow for cyclists and pedestrians. We desperately need sidewalks or bike lanes or at least an expanded road shoulder.

Each morning before dawn, weekdays & weekends, the attendants at the Exxon & Liberty gas stations get out their leaf blowers. They use them for as much as an hour at a time, violating county noise ordinances for that time of day and blowing trash into our neighborhood streets.

The exit signs on Route 50 are tiny and way off to the side. They're also placed just before the exit.
This leads to a lot of last-minute swerving -- we're talking a four-lane road, people -- and could be solved with an additional sign a ways before each exit.
NOTE: I'm not terribly geriatric, these signs are tiny for a highway

The merge from S. Walter Reed Drive to Washington Blvd heading towards DC is terrible. I've complained about it before. There's a wreck here probably monthly. I was hit from behind this week by a car that was looking back at oncoming traffic and didn't see I wasn't out of her way yet. Please add a light or something. Traffic from Washington Blvd and Arlington Blvd merge at this same point all doing 50+ MPH and it is a total mess.
801 15th Street South Arlington, Virginia
Construction in the Pentagon City area has created total roadway, pedestrian and bicycle chaos resulting in a very dangerous area. For example one lane on 15th St simply dead-ends in the middle of an intersection, creating very dangerous and sudden merges, backups and untenable pedestrian walks. It's so bad that local ART buses don't know where to let off their passengers, in one case releasing bus passengers from the LEFT LANE while the light was green. I very narrowly missed hitting two people who popped out the door and ran in front of me in the right lane. I doubt Arlington County has any clue how dangerous it has gotten on Hayes St between Walter Reed and 15th St. HELP!
