Join traffic, transit forum
Concerned about travel conditions in the D.C. area? We discuss them each Monday at noon. Here's a link to the online chat. You can use that to submit a question or comment in advance.
Late last week, the Virginia Department of Transportation finally was able to complete the reconfiguration of the two ramps from eastbound I-66 onto the Capital Beltway's inner loop. That put the merges back to the way they were before last fall, when they were aligned to make way for HOT lanes construction. That alignment increased congestion, but the fix was delayed many times by winter weather.
On Saturday, runners in the National Marathon passed through six of the District's eight wards. Did that disrupt your travels?
Tonight, Metro starts its six hearings on proposals to balance the transit budget through fare increases, service cuts, taking money from the capital budget, or a combination of those strategies. Metro posted an online survey inviting people to submit their opinions on this. Tonight's hearing is at Oakton High School Lecture Hall, 2900 Sutton Rd., Vienna.
For this Sunday's Commuter page, I'm planning to do a preview of what travelers can expect from the 2010 construction season. Is there a project you're eager to hear about?
We could also trade tips for dealing with travel during the National Cherry Blossom Festival, which starts Saturday, and the baseball season at Nationals Park, which starts with an exhibition game April 3.
