Today's read: roads and rails
Today's Post had several stories of top interest to travelers, but the news wasn't so good.
Costly connector: The Maryland Transportation Authority approved rates Thursday for the Intercounty Connector, but the toll road will not pay for itself, even with rates that will amount to as much as $6.15 each way for drivers traveling the entire length.

Metro considering cuts: These aren't the cuts looming for the fiscal year that starts in July. No, these could come in late January or in February, because Metro is facing a shortfall of $40 million in its current budget. One option: no eight-car trains. (Ann Scott Tyson)
