The sun rises on the ICC

The Intercounty Connector (ICC) officially opened Wednesday morning. The exact times were 1:15 a.m. for the westbound lanes and 3:20 a.m. on the eastbound side, according to a Maryland transportation spokesperson. During the rush hour peak between 6-7 a.m., 1,100 cars used the new superhighway that connects Gaithersburg and Silver Spring. (Ben de la Cruz/The Washington Post)
