BY REBECCA BENNETT —  A long-awaited left turn signal on southbound Baltimore Avenue at Jefferson Street, leading into the Shoppes at Arts District, was installed by the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) in January.

A crosswalk and pedestrian signal is also scheduled for the north side of the intersection, which SHA said will be done later.  According to SHA, this improvement requires additional right-of-way and has a longer design schedule.

In Aug. 2014, Hyattsville resident Aimee Condayan requested SHA review the intersection after her family was almost hit by a car by a car making that left turn.
