Group plans to fix unsafe intersection


The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) is planning changes to a dangerous intersection that has already claimed several lives.

The SHA will install concrete curbs at the area where Braeburn Parkway meets River Road.

The community has been lobbying for new safety features there since February 2016 when a Bethesda family of three was killed in a crash at the intersection.

Parents continue to worry about the area which is next to Walt Whitman high school.

The SHA said they’ll also install new pedestrian and traffic signals on both sides of River Road which will be active for pedestrians by summer 2019.
