This intersection creates extreme problems for traffic flow on Centreville Rd. during evening rush hour times and at various times during the weekend. The fields at EDS are heavily used by citizens who mostly approach from the south on Centreville Rd. As they wait for a friendly opening in southbound traffic, they create backups that frequently extend south of Franklin Middle School on Centreville Rd.
In the current configuration, traffic traveling north on West Ox Rd. crests a hill at or just before the intersection of Dower House Rd. This provides an extremely dangerous condition if vehicles are waiting to turn into Dower House from northbound West Ox. It is believed some regrading would improve conditions considerably. Additionally, improved signage can be installed to warn drivers of the somewhat dangerous conditions.
Several streets within Franklin Farm are in serious need of repair/resurfacing. Contact the Foundation Office for details. 703-620-6230
Although this intersection is scheduled for improvement either as part of the Centreville Rd. widening program, or within development plans of adjacent property (Dulles Discovery), it has become a critical safety issue. Many vehicles are forced to take dangerous risks in order to travel from north-west bound Lees Corner Rd. onto Centreville Rd. This problem in creating additional unwanted cut-through traffic over residential streets in Franklin Farm, creating needless safety concerns for our residents, especially our children.
