2 Metro Lots Closed This Weekend

Last Sunday's Dr. Gridlock column included a letter from a participant in the Race for the Cure who discovered only on arriving at Van Dorn Station that the lot was closed for paving. So I wanted to highlight the maintenance jobs coming up this weekend.

New Carrollton
The station's surface parking lot No. 2 will be closed Saturday and Sunday. Metro says the work should have a minimal impact, because only 357 of the 3,519 parking spaces will be off limits. The main parking garage and surface lots 3 and 4 will be open.

On Saturday, the Kiss-and-Ride Lot at Fort Drive NW will close to prepare for resurfacing. The street will remain open to Metrobus traffic. On Saturday, June 28, the Kiss-and Ride Lot will be closed for asphalt paving and Metrobus service will be detoured until the job is done. The street is scheduled to reopen that afternoon, Metro says.

For more information on these projects, see the station managers, call
202-637-7000, TTY at 202-638-3780, or see Metro's Web site.

Just wanted to thank the guy in the big honkin' Escalade on inbound Independence Ave. this morning who told me that "Women shouldn't have drivers licenses!!" I haven't laughed that hard in a while -- hilarious! You made my day!

So true. That would end traffic congestion immediately.
