Editorial:Metro needs to be extended from Fort Belvoir to Dulles Airport

EDITORIAL:The metro needs to be extended from Fort Belvoir to Springfield Transportation Center to Tyson's Corner and then to Dulles Airport. While gas prices are going down , traffic congestion is up. WTOP is a constant report of crashes in the morning. Mixed use is developing. What would have happened if metro had not happened? We need to get real. The future in development is rapid transit. The only way we are going to go out of the current economic mess is mixed use development and aggressive development of metro to Dulles. If we do not, we will have total grid lock of crashes. We also need to promote a second bridge for bikes and passenger connecting the Barry Road to the other side of the Springfield Transportation Center. Additionally a bike bath parallel to the railroad track needs to be developed.
