I'd like to hear about any driving alternatives into the city. Come cherry blossom time, during the week, I take 395 (at Little River Turnpike), and the 14th St. bridge is even more miserable than traffic on a rainy afternoon. And I work on Saturdays -- that's a bear, too, and continuing along 14th with all the tourists crossing even when the cross light has already turned red for them, well, I don't have much patience after 11 seasons of this (I know--I'm a newbie compared with some of you!). I kindly suggested to my boss that I could work from home for the next 2-3 weeks, but she responded with a laugh... imagine that! I also have to drive; Metro just doesn't mesh with my work schedule.

I-66 to the Memorial Bridge and the E St. exit sometimes gets me to work faster.

Or I can just leave 30-45 minutes earlier than usual, but that's no fun!

Any other routes -- or diverted paths on them -- you can share?
