Posted on June 16, 2011 in: In the News • Study • Survey • Traffic Congestion
A joint regional survey of area transportation professionals most familiar with the region’s transportation challenges finds significant consensus on projects and solutions that would do the most to improve mobility and reduce congestion.
The joint study was commissioned by the 2030 Group, a private sector coalition of regional business and academic leaders, and conducted by the Northern Virginia Transportation Alliance and the Suburban Maryland Transportation Alliance.
Congestion costs this region $4 – $5 billion per year and the average commuter $1,500 per year. Over 20 years, that’s $80 – $100 billion. Implementing this program would cost a fraction of that amount.
