MoCo's secret move to close Leland St. backfires in Bethesda back alley (Photos)
close off Leland Street to traffic from Woodmont Avenue with no public process has backfired. The closure has simply moved the problem over to the residents of Strathmore Street, where cars are now turning into a back alley that connects Woodmont to the same road drivers were trying to reach via Leland: Bradley Boulevard.
Of course, the alley has none of the expensive traffic islands County taxpayers paid to install on Leland, only to have the street closed off, rendering the traffic "calming" measures moot. Therefore, the impotent dunderheads of the County Council have once again put the public at risk with another cheap "war on cars" move. Heckuva job, Brownie!
