Signing Off — But Stay Tuned

This week marks the first anniversary of Streetsblog Capitol Hill, as well as a time of transition — this post will be my last for the site. I hope that the blog’s coverage has helped illuminate some of the previously impenetrable details of federal transportation policy-making, and I hope you will continue reading the valuable local perspectives on offer at the New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles Streetsblogs.

In fact, my colleagues at the NY, SF, and LA sites will continue to syndicate relevant content on the Capitol Hill blog until a new reporter arrives on the full-time federal infrastructure beat.

Stay tuned to this space for more, and drop a line to tips@streetsblog.org if you are interested in the open position or in submitting freelance posts. Happy reading to all!
