Will a Four-Day Work Week for State Employees Ease Road Congestion?

According to WTOP Radio, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell is considering whether to implement a four-day work week for state employees. That has some across the area wondering what impact that would have on roadways in Northern Virginia.
"Any reduction (in vehicles) is going to help, particularly for workers that are in the outer areas where we don't have very high transit usage," Ron Kirby, director of transportation planning at the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, tells WTOP. According to Kirby, taking just a few hundred cars off roadways is enough to improve traffic flow."
