A bridge to cross for Science City
By Richard Lampl
What a great milestone. The Montgomery County Council has approved the Science City Plan, the beginning of an international center for biosciences [Metro, May 5]. The county and the region will become famous for breakthroughs in biosciences that will make all our lives better. This is a typical American example of expansion to meet a challenge.
Now is the time to build the necessary infrastructure to help make the scientific advancement a success. By all means we should build a new rapid-transit system to partially meet the new workers’ needs, but it is also a time to extend the intercounty connector being built between Gaithersburg and Laurel through that area to the Dulles corridor and build a new bridge across the Potomac.
A new bridge is inevitable in the next 50 years. Why not build it now?
