RICHMOND, VA—Changes are coming to a busy Richmond intersection after the 8News Street Squad took your concerns to the Department of Public Works.

Accidents are not uncommon at the intersection of Grayland Avenue and Harrison Street.

There were 14 crashes at the intersection from February 1, 2009 to February 1, 2013, according to the Richmond Department of Public Works.

After recognizing a pattern of "angle" type crashes at the intersection, the department said it will install "intersection ahead" signs on Harrison Street in both approaches.

Additionally, the following maintenance will be performed on the following traffic control devices:

-Replace two vandalized "no parking" signs on the west side of the bridge from Harrison Street southbound approaching Grayland Avenue.
-Replace a vandalized STOP sign on the south side of Grayland Ave.
-Install a stop bar on Grayland Ave.
