DDOT Traffic Advisory: UPDATE - Temporary One-lane Bridge on Broad Branch Road Open for Bicyclists

 

This DDOT notice comes to us from Monica Hernandez

(Washington, D.C.) After careful consideration and in response to the needs of the community, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has determined that bicyclists may use the temporary bridge that is located over Soapstone Creek on Broad Branch Road, NW between Brandywine and Ridge Roads. 

 

Cheapest Gas In D.C.?

Cheapest Gas In D.C.?

Gas prices throughout the District are ridiculously high right now, and for that reason, even the "cheapest gas" in the city isn't exactly cheap.

That being said, it is still nice to pump up your tank for the lowest possible cost.

Today I passed the Sunoco station at 2830 Sherman Ave in Northwest, at the corner of Sherman and Harvard Street.

They are charging $3.76 per gallon, if the customer pays in cash, which is the lowest price for regular gas I've seen around the city recently.

I stopped, pumped, and while my bill was still absurdly high, I felt somewhat good about filling up for what I thought had to be one of the lowest prices in the city.

Crazy Backed Up Traffic On Rock Creek Parkway

Crazy Backed Up Traffic On Rock Creek Parkway

There was a ridiculous traffic back-up on Rock Creek Parkway this morning, headed in the direction of Maryland.

Check out this photo that I snapped while driving(apologies if they're not great).  This picture don't even really do the length of the back-up justice. 

It was a really, absurdly long line of bumper to bumper, presumably because of construction.

Were you stuck in that traffic this morning?  If you were...how bad was it?
