What a Difference a Traffic Light Makes

Did you happen to be on 28 North near Waxpool Road at Pacific Boulevard this afternoon during rush hour? If so, you know it wasn't much of a rush. The Loudoun County Sherrif's Department was on scene directing traffic thanks to a traffic light that was out at Waxpool and Pacific Boulevard.

Traffic was backed up big time on 28 North causing a huge delay. As of about 6 p.m. traffic was backed up as far as the eye could see, with no sight of a repair crew. You might want to avoid the intersection for a while if possible.

  1. 0925 until 0935 this morning, corner of Belmont Ridge Road and Route 7. Turn lane and middle lanes going south on Belmont Ridge had about 8 cars each waiting to turn. Both signals changed for all of FIVE SECONDS! Why must it take 7 minutes to go through an intersection? The timing allowed only 2 cars through the intersection at a time. Where should this complaint be directed??
