What's new with slugging and sluglines.

395 Express Lanes/Eads Street construction updates: Beginning next Tuesday, January 22 (subject to weather condition), the traffic pattern at Eads Street will change.  Both sides of Eads Street will reopen, but the same traffic restrictions in the AM and PM peak are still in effect.  The temporary slug relocation of the 610 Stafford and Mine Road stations will continue to be on North Rotary Road through the duration of the construction at Eads Street.[Click here for info on the forum]

DDOT Changes Curbside Regulations for Slugging!!: A fellow slug (Nicole) and a few other slugs met with DDOT a number of months ago urging them change the existing regulation that prevented drivers from stopping to pick up slugs. They also stated a petition too. Well, the good news is that slugs do have a voice when we stick together because DDOT has decided to change their regulations. Below a part of DDOT stated: "DDOT is working to change the curbside regulations for the 1400 block of New York Ave. The new regulations will enable tour bus parking during non-rush hours and passenger pick-up/drop-off during the hours of 3:00-6:30pm. We found that Slugline operations are consistent with the curbside regulations for passenger loading and have determined that the operations can be accommodated at this location as well. We have a goal to complete these curb adjustments by end of January 2019." [Click here for info on the forum]

I-66 Tolls and Slugging: hit $46.75 for solo drivers: Although it has been a few months since the Washington Post reported the all time high of $46.75 for a solo driver on I-66, the tolls are still a good reason to start more slug lines along I-66.[Click here for info on the forum].
