Examiner Editorial: Do Away With Rockville Pike 'Death Lane' — The ever provocative Washington Examiner editorial board yesterday came out against the State Highway Administration's proposed extra lane for Rockville Pike at Cedar Lane. The Board labeled it a "death lane," because an independent traffic analyst hired by residents against the project concluded it would cause safety issues in a merge area. SHA officials at the March 19 meeting cited in the editorial denied that, saying the designed merge area is standard throughout the state and country.
