To enter the contest to blow up the Woodrow Wilson Bridge -Bad Commute? Why Not Blow Up the Bridge?
August 11, 2006 · Commuting is hell. But there is the old war story bit that people get into. You've been at a dinner party and people start sharing their horror stories, wearing like a badge of honor the nightmare time the jelly donut truck overturned on the highway causing a 16-hour delay where people died of dehydration.
But now, you can have revenge, at least if you live in the D.C. area. One of the worst parts of the road system in the area was the old Woodrow Wilson Bridge on the beltway that connected Virginia and Maryland. Transportation authorities have just finished moving all the traffic to the new bridge and are offering commuters a chance at revenge. The commuter with the absolute worst commuting story gets the chance to blow the old bridge up in a couple of weeks.
