The Traffic signal at the intersection of ‘Old’ Henry Street and Franklin Street in Alexandria, Virginia is proposed for removal. The issue is coming up before the Traffic & Parking Board THIS Monday (May 23, 2016) @ 7:30 pm.
The traffic signal was installed in the 1980’s when the Robert E. Lee Elementary School was in service before the school was decommissioned and converted to the Nannie J. Lee Recreation Center in the 1990’s.
Since the school was decommissioned, traffic & pedestrian volume is down therefore the City feels there is no longer a need for the traffic signal at this intersection.
