What’s happening my beautiful people of the DMV? We are back with another week of epic updates. Welcome to What’s Going On D.C.?
First, let’s discuss our beloved Metro system. Well, the timetable for the return of normal Metrorail service is still uncertain after a huge derailment on the Blue Line. Speaking of the Blue Line, it seems Prince Georges County has asked Metro to change the name of Largo Town Center Station. Here are the suggested name changes; Largo, Downtown Largo, and Downtown PGC. The public can join in on the conversation at wmata.com/initiatives.
On the subject of Prince Georges County, the area has seen over 100 homicides for the first time in a decade. This is something we would really like to see the county get a hold of. Folks, let’s stop the violence!
On a brighter note. If you thought our 35 Under 35 list was lit, check out Washington City Paper’s Best of DC 2021 list online now. Also, we here at The Bridge send a happy birthday to the Juan Soto of the Washington Nationals.

Well, according to WUSA9, Maryland and Virginia’s drivers owe the D.C. Government more than $220 million in outstanding camera tickets. Let’s just say, with everyone working from home, those millions will definitely grow.
