A conversation with a traffic engineer
A number of people have sent this hilarious xtranormal video where a traditional traffic engineer tries to explain a street "improvement" project to a resident of a nice, safe neighborhood street.
It seems to be based on the recent Confessions of a Recovering Engineer, also from Strong Towns.
Lest you think this is gross parody, I had a conversation very similar to the first few exchanges in this video with a project manager in DDOT's IPMA about how much to round the corner of 18th and S, NW, and I've heard public statements that eerily resemble other parts from leaders of the Montgomery County DOT.
- How might the new Metro loop work?
- More roads won't solve traffic on I-95 in Northern Virginia
- Want the urban lifestyle? DC's best corner is...
- Can we build up around MARC stations?
- What's the oldest continuously named street in DC?
- The reason cyclists love green bike lanes
- How does DC's proposed Metro loop compare?
