Headaches on the Horizon

Saturday Morning Congestion
Any big event on a Saturday morning in the core of the Washington region means traffic congestion. Bike DC will close streets and some major roads in Arlington and the District near the Potomac. The Key Bridge is likely to be a mess, too. Details on the street closings are in this previous posting.

Because those street closings will affect Metrobuses, too, add extra time for travel on these routes: 5A, 7A, 7F, 13A, 13B, 13F, 13G, 16B, 16G, 16J, 16K, 23A, 32, 34, 36, 38B, 52, 54, 64, 70, 80, 90, 92, 96, A42, A46, A48, D6, L2, N6, P6, S2, S4 and V8.

As you plan your morning travels, also consider that the rain will only make the traffic congestion worse in these areas.

The number of streets that were closed off for this BikeDC was totally ridiculous. There should have been a better route planned for bikers so that all of the major streets and thoroughfares in DC were not affected. Every major alphabet street in and numbered streets were closed from Georgetown to Capitol Hill. That is not acceptable. I am not opposed to these type of events, I just don't agree with all the street closures.
