The beginning of July is an important time for our nation and the Commonwealth. The 4th of July is on the horizon -- this coming week we will see parades, fireworks and the “unofficial” start of summer. Remember our children are out of school, so please drive responsibly in our communities. 

Another major date of note is July 1, the enactment date for most newly passed legislation. During the course of the year, we have tried to highlight the most significant bills that will have a major impact going forward. The Richmond Times-Dispatch also offers a good snapshot of new legislation. 

Metro has released the final SafeTrack plan to the public. SafeTrack is a "comprehensive maintenance effort that will accelerate three years worth of work into approximately one year."

The project will result in reduced Orange and Silver Line service beginning Saturday, June 4.

It's important to familiarize yourself now with SafeTrack and plan accordingly. The full file is available on the WMATA website by clicking here.

The Washington Post published a good article earlier this week with additional links and information. The article contains links to specific solutions and services being offered by Fairfax County, Arlington County, and Alexandria City. Click here to read the article.
