Last Meeting Tonight on I-66 Study

The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation is studying ways of improving transit and managing traffic congestion in the I-66 corridor between the District and Haymarket.

Tonight, it is wrapping up a set of public meetings reviewing what's under study. That includes new bus services -- possibly a Bus Rapid Transit or express bus line -- as well as carpooling, vanpooling and park and ride lots to give commuters more choices.

You can learn more about the department's study, which should be done this fall, at this link.

Tonight's meeting, the last of three, is in the Oakton High School cafeteria, 2900 Sutton Rd., Vienna. A continuous open house with people who have worked on the study goes from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Also, presentations about the study are set for 7 and 8 p.m., followed by Q&A sessions.

Here's a humble suggestion for how to alleviate congestion on I-66: WIDEN IT THROUGH ARLINGTON, YOU BUFFOONS!

Any more questions?
