I-66 congestion the topic of Saturday meeting

Traffic congestion on Interstate 66 in Northern Virginia will be discussed Saturday as U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-10th|http://wolf.house.gov/ District) and two Fairfax County supervisors -- Pat S. Herrity|http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/springfield/ (R-Springfield) and Michael R. Frey|http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/sully/supervisor.htm (R-Sully) -- convene a public meeting on the subject at 10 a.m. at Chantilly High School.

The agenda includes proposals to establish a Bus Rapid Transit system in the I-66 corridor, increase the use of shoulder lanes, open the Monument and Stringfellow interchanges to non-HOV vehicles outside of normal HOV hours, and improvement to the interchange at I-66 and the Beltway.

Chantilly High School is at 4201 Stringfellow Rd., just off Route 50.

This meeting is being held at 10am on Saturday because that is the only time that it won't take 2 hours to get to the meeting, using I-66.

Unfortunately, on Saturday 66 looks like any rush hour -- the difference being kids in vehicles.

Don't hold your breath. But if you're in need of heat on a cold day you might as well go for the hot air. Everybody knows something needs done but as is typical in VA they'll talk for years before ever doing anything. They've been talking about metro to Dulles since I moved here in 1994. It's now finally started even though it was truly a no brainer. Sure it was going to cost money but how may things get cheaper by waiting?
