Trader Joe's eyes Clarendon, wants parking:
Trader Joe's is planning to open a new location
less than a block away from the Clarendon Metro station. Still, final approval likely hinges on TJ's demand to have dedicated free parking spaces. (ARLNow, Nick)
New 99 bus?:
WMATA is considering a new 99 express bus
along the 90/92/93 route. There are three public meetings next week to discuss that and other potential improvements to the line family. (TBD)
Using Census Transportation Planning Package data, Harry Kao has created a tool to map commutes
