Wasting away in the forgotten corners of D.C.’s network of streets are ghost roads — bygone byways that were abandoned, left unfinished or doomed by politics. What happens to roads that are cut off from civilization? For the second year in a row, WTOP explores some of these spooky corridors in a series of photos.
A native to the Washington area, Dave Dildine is no stranger to the region's complex traffic and weather patterns. Dave joined WTOP in 2010 when the station launched its very own in-house traffic service. You can hear him "on the 8s and when it breaks" from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays.
