Join in noon discussion
Our regular weekly chat about traffic and transit issues in the D.C. area is scheduled for noon. We have so many issues.
Were there lessons learned from the big storms, either for transportation departments or for travelers? One interesting suggestion I received was from a D.C. resident who thinks it would be easier to plow the neighborhood streets if drivers were required to remove their cars from one side of the street on alternating days so the plows could get in.
The National Transportation Safety Board is holding its hearings on the June 22 crash this week. Last week, the Metro board got into an interesting discussion about whether it's time to review the policy of operating trains under manual control, rather than automatic.
Metro and some of the region's other transit agencies will begin charging more for rides next week.
The Wilson Bridge project announced it's ending the variable speed limit system that has been in affect along the Beltway near the Telegraph Road work zone. It's back to a constant 55 mph now. What did drivers think of the variable speed limit program. Did you even notice it was in effect?
