Dr. Gridlock: January 16, 2011 - January 22, 2011

Ten thousand people with an interest in transportation -- from journalists to government officials and academics -- are descending on Washington next week for the annual meeting of the Transportation Research Board, a division of the nonprofit National Research Council.

The weekend and beyond

Travelers dodged the snow, but they won't escape the cold and wind in the D.C. area this weekend. There's not much scheduled in the way of outdoor activities that might interfere with getting around. At Verizon Center, the Wizards play the Phoenix Suns at 7 p.m. Friday and the Boston Celtics at 7 p.m. Saturday. Metro has a more modest program of track work this weekend. There are no major road work programs scheduled for the daytime, but there are some lane and ramp closings.

How commuters define misery

The Texas Transportation Institute is scheduled on Thursday to release the latest version of the report we've long relied on as a benchmark of our misery as commuters. The D.C. region is always high up on the list of congested areas in the institute's Urban Mobility Report. The report released in 2009 again ranked Washington second to Los Angeles in car congestion. Politicians, transportation advocates, reporters, columnists and commuters cite the statistic whenever they seek a national measure of just how dire a fix we're in. But what does it mean?

Lasers an increasing hazard for pilots

The number of reported incidents where lasers have been pointed at airplanes almost doubled from 2009 to 2010, according to a report Wednesday from the Federal Aviation Administration. "The FAA is actively warning people not to point high-powered lasers at aircraft because they can damage a pilot's eyes or cause temporary blindness," FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt said in a statement. "We continue to ask pilots to immediately report laser events to air traffic controllers so we can contact local law enforcement officials."

New escalators for Foggy Bottom

The transit authority is about to begin a project that should ease the notorious bottleneck for Metrorail riders trying to get in and out of the Foggy Bottom Station. Next Monday, workers will start replacing the three old, often-out-of-service escalators with three new ones. Also, they will add a staircase adjacent to that bank of escalators between 23rd Street NW and the station mezzanine. Above it all will be a canopy to better protect the works from the weather.

Delays ahead in Manassas

The Virginia Department of Transportation is building a bridge on Route 28 over Wellington Road and the Norfolk Southern Railroad tracks in Manassas to eliminate the at-grade crossing.
