Traffic is the single largest concern in the region. I used to drive 50+ miles each way to get to work in Alexandria. I understand that frustration when traffic is backing up and there’s no viable alternative.
- Mass Transit: Mass transit is the key to reducing driving and improving local employment opportunities. Jobs cluster at transit hubs and a few minutes on a train is much easier than driving.
- Infrastructure: At the same time, mass transit will not work for everyone. We must ensure that our highways, bridges, and other transportation infrastructure are safe. They must be repaired when needed and replaced if necessary.
