"The new bridge will carry six lanes rather than four "

Hey, WaPo, the existing bridge has five lanes; three towards downtown, and two towards Bolling/Suitland.

But the fact is, like Froggie said in the comments, the current bridge is significantly sup-par for bicyclists and pedestrians (and for the scooters I used to see on the sidewalk sometimes), as is the entire gloop of ramps and intersections on the east end of the bridge.

Kolohe, there are three questions:

1. Should we repair this bridge or replace it?

2. Should we replace it now or later?

3. Should we replace it with this or something else?

I think most people agree that the answer to question 1 is yes. It's the other questions where disagree pops up.
