If you live in Northern Virginia it could be because we have lots of traffic. In fact a recent study shows a significant portion of the Northern Virginia area ranks in the top 25 locales for traffic.
With the completion of the Springfield Interchange and the Wilson Bridge Project drivers were expecting to see significant improvement in their commute times. However now the Tyson’s Corner improvements, expansion of the Fairfax County Parkway and HOT lanes have slowed commuters down again.
Even though 4 locations in our are made the top 25 don’t despair.
# 7-Washington, D.C
#13-Fairfax County, Va.
You don’t have to be stuck in traffic in our area. With the metro rail system, VRE, commuter bus routes and slug lines chances are you have another option. If you are relocating to the area make sure you check the commuting options from your top choice neighborhoods. You might be surprised to find out that you can leave your car at home all week long and have a smirk on your face as you speed past all of the drivers who are at a dead standstill.
