“Big Tires, Big Trucks, Big Problems”
The changing seasons always bring added traffic concerns.
Consider this: moving from spring to summer means accommodating the changing traffic patterns affected by schools letting out; while in many places, moving from fall to winter means an influx of bad weather affecting road conditions.
Washington D.C., our nation’s capitol, is no exception to this phenomenon. In fact, having been rated worst in traffic congestion problems in a recent study, perhaps D.C. actually understands the implications of traffic changes more intimately than some.
Contributing to the regular wear-and-tear of the capitol’s roadways have been big truck drivers, who use Route 301 as a popular loop around the worst of the mess:
That popularity was most noticeable at intersections where heavy trucks would halt a downhill run to wait for traffic signals. The stress deformed the pavement, creating ruts and ripples (Washington Post).
It’s no surprise, then, that as summer moved into fall this past year, citizens of D.C. made their sentiments known: they wanted their roadways smooth and ready for the morning commute.
Of course, making that demand created another problem: the problem of repaving sections of some of the most heavily-trafficked roads in America without adding further chaos to an already snarled situation. Although road crews do attempt the majority of their work at night, unforeseen delays such as equipment malfunctions and heavy storms often put their work behind schedule, leaving them with little choice but to either catch up during daylight hours or remain behind.
The good news is that improvements in asphalt quality and application techniques mean that pavement will last longer and longer, and construction projects will start getting less frequent (Roads & Bridges). This will be a welcome relief to commuters everywhere, who may be able to say goodbye to the traffic jams that seem to come along every summer just to make the roads passable until next year.
And although big trucks and other types of heavy equipment do complicate traffic situations and prove a strain on the roadways, we are thankful that their continued presence signals a workforce on the move.
