From bad to worst with N.H. Ave. lane reductions

The idea of reducing New Hampshire Avenue from six lanes to four is beyond belief. It will cause more of us to sit in traffic longer, adding to the already poor air quality in the region ("Designs call for narrower New Hampshire Avenue," Aug. 13 article).

I cannot believe that these people have ever been in rush hour.

The current road construction that gives you four lanes would give any thinking person a preview of how much worse this idea is.

Langley Park is a gateway into the District of Columbia and is extremely congested.

This fantasy will make a bad situation impossible.
