On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Guest Host: Jennifer Golbeck
The region’s transportation planning board voted last week to study the feasibility and usefulness of building a second Potomac River bridge linking Montgomery County and Northern Virginia. The idea has been considered for decades as a way to ease traffic on notoriously congested local thruways. But opponents point to its high price tag and environmental concerns. The bridge is one of many proposed projects aimed at addressing regional traffic congestion, a problem that legislators have tried diligently to address for decades with little luck. We explore the proposal and the challenge of easing the region’s gridlock.
