The end time on the No-Left-Turn at the exit for parents from TPES/Takoma Park Elementary School has been extended to 4:30 pm due to a change in the school's release time.
Several years ago there was no sign at all. The traffic jams morning and afternoon were very bad. I went to the city council several times to ask for help. Finally I showed up in a yellow rain coat and said I'd direct traffic myself if they didn't do something. So Housing and Community Development, TPES and Montgomery County Public Schools got together and did a traffic study. This prevents exiting traffic from coming up against through traffic coming down the hill to the left. That includes the many school buses for whom it's already difficult to maneuver when cars are parked on both sides.
