A day after a deadly crash in Franklin County, residents say more needs to be done to keep drivers safe. In the last three years, the Virginia Department of Transportation says 20 crashes happened at the same place. It’s one reason for the new blinking signs, installed just days before Brittany Henritze and David Nash, II were killed. The signs are the first of a series of changes VDOT is making to try to improve the intersection. The changes were requested several years ago by Franklin County as part of VDOT’s SmartScale program. VDOT says they are developing a project to install some turn lanes and expect construction to begin in spring or summer of 2020.
