Highlights of the Latest Slugging News…

Horner Road Creates Second Line!  Effective 17 September 02, the Horner Road commuter lot (exit 158 of I-95) will create a second slug-line to accommodate the growth of slugging. The original single line has become so popular that it has effected both safety and efficiency. To better serve the slugs, Horner Road will create a second line in the "New Lot" recently completed. Destinations for each line:

Old Line: Pentagon, Rosslyn, Crystal City

New Line: 14th Street, 18th Street, Navy Yard
