    Probably the 2nd best thing they could do at Walter Reed (best is build an overpass) would be to shift the path back from 4MR to be closer to 4MR Minor and stop southbound Walter Reed traffic at 4MR minor instead of 4MR. This would give turning traffic more visibility into bikes and pedestrians crossing, particularly since there aren't dedicated turn signals for left turns off 4MR.
    This is essentially the design at George Mason, which works better than Walter Reed, IMO.

    I ran through the intersection on the WOD this morning and purposely didnít push the beg button. The hand stayed red the whole time that 4MR had the green light.
