New traffic-light timing seeks to unclog D.C. intersections

WASHINGTON — Some of the most frustrating intersections in the District could get a little less exasperating, starting Friday night.

D.C.’s Department of Transportation will start rolling out new traffic light timing at about 8 p.m. They promise better traffic flow and shorter travel times for drivers.

Over the next month, the timing will change at more than 600 intersections downtown (between 23rd Street NW, North Capitol Street, U Street/Florida Avenue and Interstate 395), as well as a few in Georgetown along M Street and Wisconsin Avenue.
