What's new with slugging and sluglines.

Telegraph Road Traffic Pattern Changes. To better organize the ever growing lines at the Telegraph Road Commuter Lot in Woodbridge, a fellow slugger has proposed multiple lines instead of the one massive line. For more information: [Click Here]

VDOT Proposal for Signs for Slugging? The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is proposing new destination signs and an additional pickup area for HOV carpooling in the Staffordboro Boulevard Park & Ride lot (aka Route 610) to better serve commuters. VDOT is proposing:
• Destination signs for the Pentagon, Crystal City, and Rosslyn lines
• New, separate HOV carpooling pickup area for Rosslyn sluggers
• Crosswalks spanning the lot’s central access road

New Navy Yard Slug Lines - Starting Monday, 02 March, two Slug-lanes will be established on the Washington Navy Yard for afternoon commuters. This pilot is approved by NSA-Washington and will be facilitated by NAVSEA.

DESTINATIONS: The two locations, selected based on a zip code analysis, are:
1) Horner Road - Woodbridge
2) Rte 610 - Stafford. 

BASE LOCATIONS:
The slug line locations will be on Patterson Ave, the one-way (northbound) street on the East side of the Bldg 28 parking garage. Signs will be posted on the left-side sidewalk.  The Horner road pick up point will be on the Northeast corner of Bldg 176, and the Rte. 610 pick-up point will be at the Northeast corner of Bldg 201.  Lines should form to the West between the buildings, and not along the roadside sidewalk. Go to Webpage [Click Here].

New DC Line at Route 610! With the increase in slugging generated from the I95 Express Lanes, fellow slugs have suggested starting a separate line for the DC commuters. The proposed new line would be adjacent to the the new bus shelter at the North end of the 610 lot. More to follow!

I66 Slug Line? A new slug line could be emerging on I-66! A fellow slug reported that he has been successful in picking up slugs from the Cushing Road Commuter Lot just off 234 in Manassas. He has even started a website to help get things started at www.66slug.com. More to follow!

Message Board Corrupted!! I am not sure what happened but thousands of postings were deleted from the message board. I do not know how this happened but I had to upload my last backup of the forum database which was almost a month old. As a result, any posting from approximately January 6th to February 2nd was lost. I believe I was able to recover all new member accounts. However, if you have any trouble logging into the message board, just let me know. Again, sorry for the trouble.

Book based on Slugging! A local author has written an exciting book based on slug lines. If you want to read an exciting novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat, pick up a copy of Slug Line! I just finished it and wow, what a ride! For more information on the book [Click Here].

HOT Lanes - Tolling takes effect on Dec. 29, all drivers in the express lanes will need to have a regular E-ZPass Flex or the E-ZPass Flex transponder, which can be switched in and out of the carpool setting. Standard HOV rules will continue to be in effect during rush hour until tolling begins on December 29, with the exception of holidays. Outside HOV hours, anyone can try the new Lanes for free.
