The City of Falls Church has announced it will celebrate Car Free Day next Tuesday, September 22 and encourage residents and commuters to show support for reduced traffic and cleaner air.
With the Pope’s visit one week away, D.C. officials are preparing for large crowds, road closures, packed trains and extensive detours. Monday, the District Department of Transportation and Metro held a joint news conference to explain their game plans.
“Ill-planned. Ill-thought-out. Ill-engineered. Ill-everything.” That’s how the late Marion Barry described the streetcar D.C. started constructing in 2008, to run along H Street and Benning Roads Northeast.
It’s just after 9 a.m. on a recent Thursday, and dozens of the 75,000 vehicles expected to travel on New York Avenue past Bladensburg Road NE that day are speeding into the District.
Metro is warning riders to expect crowding and delays on trains and buses during Pope Francis’ visit to D.C. later this month.
