Police Update Leesburg’s Most Dangerous Intersection List

Once again in 2021, the East Market Street/Cardinal Park Drive intersection ranked at the top of the Leesburg Police Department’s list for having the most crashes.

The East Market Street/Fort Evans Road intersection jumped from fifth place in 2020 to second in 2021. The Leesburg Bypass/Edwards Ferry Road intersection dropped from second in 2020 to third.

Rounding out last year’s most dangerous intersections were East Market Street/Battlefield Parkway and Battlefield Parkway/Miller Drive.

    What exactly are we supposed to do with this list? And, more importantly, what are local authorities doing about these problem areas?

    Yes, we all know Leesburg has horribly dangerous intersections. Why not tell us what you’re going to do about it? Enough of your shoulder-shrugging. C’mon, Leesburg officials. Roll up your sleeves & get to work. No more carnage.

    There will always be a “most dangerous intersection” if you rank them in order, just like every schoolroom will have a “tallest” kid. If every intersection was100% safe except for a single stoplight that had 1 accident, it would be the “most dangerous intersection” in the county. Now, if you provided actual numbers as well as statistics over time, then we can start to draw conclusions. A statement like “East Market Street/Fort Evans Road intersection jumped from fifth place in 2020 to second in 2021” gives us no information without data. Did accidents there increase in 2021, or were other intersections made safer and thus moved down the list?

    Provide some context and data, or don’t publish an article like this that only serves to alarm people and fear monger.

    VDOT made such a huge, incompetent mistake with the Battlefield Parkway overpass. If you don’t get a fender bender trying to get into the right lane to follow 7 west bypass (as people in the right lane try to get out to follow 7 west through Leesburg)…then you’ll probably get creamed going east up the ramp and then trying to cross 4 lanes in 500 feet so you can head toward Lowes & Wegmans.

      Compare the “new” Cardinal/Battlefield/Rte 7 area to the “new” Bypass/Rte 15 area…. which is more improved?

    That Battlefield overpass at night is downright scary. What in the world were they thinking? Who designed it Mrs. Murgatroids Third Grade Civics class? And another VDOT jewel is Route 15 with I-66 intersection south of here. It makes no sense why why routed roads backwards to what seems normal flow.
