A bridge to cross for Science City

By washingtonpost.com editors

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?

Absolutely, build both bridges and finally realize the outter beltway dream. We should all hope and pray that the high paying jobs will be able to afford driving on it.
