WMATA-

The highways are still physically feasible, even if some badly placed stuff as "Elevation 314" get removed as they should for placing residences within the RR wreck footprint.

The problem is political. The plans were deliberately botched to create opposition (to keep the highways away from CUA and the Eastern Star Masonic Home), and challenged by railroad interests (aka Covington & Burling) more interested in making driving harder rather then transit easier (let alone do anything about the RR's that tri-sect NE).

So is covering portions of the CUA/Brookland area Red Line- Richard Layman's disgraceful flip lop notwithstanding.

Of course for the text book ideologies, even criticizing an urban RR's design is something they seem incapable of doing.
