Yield to pedestrian signs coming to Wards Corner

January 6, 2016

r10-15Many thanks to local business owner, John Knight, for contacting the City about the crosswalk between the Midtown Shopping Center and the K&K Shopping Center.  It seems there have been a number of close calls for pedestrians crossing E. Little Creek Road at that location.

The City’s traffic engineer studied the location and agreed that it was dangerous.  New Yield to Pedestrians signs will be installed shortly on the appropriate traffic signal poles at the intersection.

John Knight owns the Book Exchange located in the Midtown Shopping Center.

ABC store coming to Wards Corner

January 6, 2016


IFB_S-016-09_AttachmentFA Virginia ABC store is coming to Wards Corner.  They will be occupying the old nTelos location which is between the current Your Pie and GNC in the Harris Teeter anchored K&K Shopping Center.

According to the regional ABC official I spoke to, the store is meant to be more convenient to those who live in the surrounding area and to alleviate some of the traffic at the Tidewater Drive location across from Southern Shopping Center.

The lease for the property commenced on December 1 and the store is planned to open before the end of January.
