Subway Gridlock In Washington D.C.

Washington D.C. is facing subway gridlock, and must build a new line through the center of Washington, D.C.

"Metro must build a new subway line through the heart of downtown Washington by 2015 to avoid gridlock on its rail system and serve the region's voracious appetite for more transit service, engineers told the agency's directors yesterday." Transit officials still contend that the future of D.C.'s rail lies in suburb-to-suburb lines, but that this problem must be fixed first.
