    This intersection is a known problem. During one of the worthless public input sessions I attended on the matter (Evergreen Mills Road safety), I pointed out to the equally worthless VDOT personnel that, given the danger of this intersection, that they should relocate the speed limit signs. Currently, VDOT has the speed limit increasing to 55mph about 500 feet before you get to this intersection. So, people are speeding up into the intersection (stupid, stupid, stupid). As I told them, they should dig up the speed limit sign and have the speed limit increase 500 feet AFTER people get through this dangerous intersection. It would cost about $100 of labor and nobody would be inconvenienced by having to go 45 MPH for an additional 1000 feet, but it could prevent accidents.

    Other problems are the gravel on Shreve Mill causes drivers, who have to pull out quickly into 55MPH+ traffic, to lose traction and badly miscalculate the time they have. The northbound turn lane off Evergreen Mills is ridiculously short also.

    But the bottom line is that another VDOT failure on Evergreen Mills has resulted in another death on Evergreen Mills Road. That makes at least 6 deaths along this 1 mile length of road from this intersection to the Goose Creek Bridge.

    Evergreen claims another life. And the Board of Supervisors has a plan to fix it in five years.

    It’s dreadful to read about more carnage on Loudoun’s roadways. To the family of Anwar Krajah, you have my sincere condolences. RIP

    This is what happens when you overpopulate an area without the proper infrastructure. Evergreen Mills mainly is the same road it was 10-15+ years ago; single lane each way. But with these new communities built along that road/vicinity, more traffic is on this road, resulting in more accidents and near-misses. I make that same left turn from Shreve onto Evergreen many times, and it can be tricky; especially at rush-hour. Maybe the BoS can stop cramming new housing communities along that road until they improve Evergreen. And improving Evergreen DOES NOT mean a traffic light at every intersection.

    How does the quantity of deaths on Evergreen Mills Rd compare with RT 15 north of Leesburg? The BoS is focused on improving RT 15 north of Leesburg at the cost of millions. Moving a sign on Evergreen Mills road doesn’t waste enough taxpayers dollars.
