Traffic, transit chat at noon
Join me at noon for our weekly discussion of the Washington area's traffic and transit concerns. Today, you'll see a new page design. Here's the link to read the chat and submit your questions and comments. You can go there before the chat starts to enter a question or comment.
On the Commuter page this Sunday, I reviewed the District Department of Transportation's effort to use technology in information sharing about traffic and transit projects. In my Dr. Gridlock column, a letter writer asked if we need to develop an etiquette for Metro platforms, since they're getting so crowded and hard to move around. Your ideas are welcome.
I was pleased to see there's at least one person out there who believes we can still be civil to each other, but also took the letter as a reminder of deteriorating conditions for transit riders. Richard Sarles, who will take over as Metro's interim general manager next month, faces a daunting challenge.
And in case you haven't seen it, the District Department of Transportation announced a new timetable for restoring the third lane on Chain Bridge: May 31 (though DDOT hopes it will be ready for Memorial Day weekend). The rehabilitation project has slowed travel for thousands of drivers since it started last spring, and it's a topic that comes up frequently during our chats.
