Some Things Never Interchange

The Washington Post today has a story on the completion of one of the largest interchange projects ever, the infamous “Mixing Bowl” in Springfield, Virginia. Anyone who lives in the Washington area or who commuted up and down the 95 corridor through the DC area has their own special tale(s) of horror regarding the Mixing Bowl. If you’re looking for a little visual retrospective, or just learning about the intersection from hell for the first time, be sure to check out Beth Rado’s photos of the project and the Springfield Interchange Flickr group..

Now that the project is done it’s smooth sailing for the 430,000 cars a day traversing the intersection of Interstate 95, 395, and 495, right?

Generally yes, but today those 24 lanes are a highway to hell…
