Meetings on Future of Roads and Buses

Here's a reminder about the meetings this week on various transportation plans affecting important auto and bus routes. For some commuters, finding out how their travel patterns could be affected may be worth missing the start of the World Series games.

Tonight and tomorrow night, the Federal Highway Administration is hosting meetings to discuss the future of the 14th Street Bridge corridor. Tonight's session is at Aurora Hills Community Center, 735 18th St. South in Arlington. Tomorrow's is at Amidon Elementary School, 401 I St. SW in the District. Both sessions, which open at 6:30.p.m., include a presentation about minimizing driver delays, improving safety and enhancing the appearance of this Washington gateway.

Also tomorrow night, the District Transportation Department will discuss work along Military Road. This session will be held at the Chevy Chase Community Center, 5601 Connecticut Ave. NW, from 6:30 to 8.p.m.
In December, DDOT changed the lane configuration between Oregon and Nebraska avenues. DDOT staff will discuss the impact on traffic and the neighborhood.

Meanwhile, Metro is holding meetings on proposals to change some bus routes and schedules.
