This Week On Metro Connection: The Road Not Taken


Welcome to "Metro Connection," I'm Rebecca Sheir. And today we begin with a nod to the inimitable Robert Frost who once penned these famous lines, "Two roads diverged in a wood and I, I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference." Well, this week, we're also taking some roads less traveled by, along with a few roads not taken at all.


We'll meet a man whose personal path led him to prison and hear how he's trying to avoid a return visit. We'll discuss some early and never built ideas, for now, iconic buildings and memorials in Washington and we'll consider big plans to build major highways right through the heart of D.C. and how those plans would've transformed the city, had they come to pass.
