(WTOP)   It's been a year since the completion of Washington DC's Beltway Express Lanes project, which constructed miles of parallel asphalt for drivers willing to pay to use them. The verdict? Well, at least now something makes Obamacare's numbers look good   ( wtop.com) divider line

As someone who commutes from Alexandria out to Fairfax every day they have been a blessing.  Instead of humping it in on back roads or bumper to bumper beltway traffic I save 30 minutes a retain pretty good fuel efficiency.  If not a lot of people use it that is fine by me, makes my drive easier.

I love it how there is absolutely no mention of the HOV usage in those figures. Remember how that was the biggest selling point when the project was proposed?

It doesn't matter.  The traffic will eventually catch up to these two extra lanes and we'll be farked again.  For now, it's nice to pay a couple bucks and skip traffic sometimes, but it should have been more rail.
