Post-script to this previous post -- 1966: VDOT Says No to Traffic Lights at Route 7 and Pimmit Drive Intersection

In the May 1973 Pimmit Hills Dispatch, it was announced that VDOT had finally approved installing a traffic light at the intersection of Route 7 and Pimmit Drive after over ten years of PHCA requesting them:

PIMMIT DRIVE TRAFFIC SIGNAL APPROVED
On March 27 [1973], the Virginia Department of Highways in Richmond APPROVED the installation of a traffic signal at Pimmit Drive and Route 7. After several years of begging and pleading for this traffic signal, it almost seems appropriate to plan for ribbon cutting celebration. Please note that it will take several more months yet before the light is actually installed.”
