What's Your Most Congested Intersection?
This is a hard one to do comprehensively, because drivers tend to stick with a couple of routes within a portion of the Washington region. It's one area where on the pavement experience has its limits. Many people who write to me at drgridlock declare their route to work -- whether by car, bus or train -- to be the worst in the region, and I'm thinking, they can't possibly know that.
So in this case, I'm asking you to simply declare what's the worst intersection that you experience and name its characteristics. Staff writer Katherine Shaver started us off by writing in today's Post about Montgomery County's Top Ten. You also can read the full highway mobility report here.
Also this spring, the regional Council of Governments released a study showing trends in highway congestion.
Then there was that sick pride we seemed to take in our high ranking for congestion in the Texas Transportation Institute's national urban mobility report.
These studies usually leave out roads affected by construction projects, because that's not a long-term thing. So some of our recent issues, like the congestion at North Glebe Road and Route 123 generated by the Chain Bridge lane closing, aren't ever taken into account in studies. You don't have the same restriction here that the researchers do. So complain away.
