Today's transportation roundup
Congestion is the news of the day. Ashley Halsey III reports on the release of annual traffic data from INRIX, a commercial company that provides what many say is the best information on what conditions we're experiencing on the roads.
According to the report, the 24 miles of Interstate 95 south of I-395 is the most congested road in the region, with the Capital Beltway through Montgomery ranking second and third, depending on the time of day and the direction you're traveling.

Ann Scott Tyson reports that Maryland and Prince George's County are naming new members to the Metro board of directors. They're the latest changes at Metro, where seven of 14 board members have left since December, a new chairman has taken the helm, and a permanent general manager was recently named.
The Washington Examiner has news of a lawsuit filed against Metro. The report says a Metro rider is suing over an incident in 2008 where a Forest Glen elevator allegedly dropped abruptly.
The National Bike Summit begins today in Washington. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood plans to attend but says he won't stand on a table this year. Ashley Halsey III will bring us occasional reports from the event, which lasts through Thursday.
