I end up traveling on the Chain Bridge a couple times per week going to various jobs in DC from my home in Arlington. Every time I move over to that center lane I can’t help but wonder when some other driver going the opposite direction might forget to read the sign and do the same thing. I worry like this for the three to five minutes it takes to get from Glebe Rd. to Arizona Ave.
So can someone tell me how often this bridge, or Canal St., gets backed up from a single accident due to absent-mindedness or apparent middle lane envy? I have been lucky so far but I am sure my time is coming.
