    I hope that they remember to repave and paint from G St SW to the freeway when the construction on the east side is finished. Now the rest of 4th Street makes this block seem even more jarring than...

    Did they also build an extension along Gallows? That seems more important than Sandburg. I can see from the tweet that they have made a bike lane along Iliff and put every bollard in northern VA to...

    It's a bit hard to see, but it looks like one heading east on the W&OD is allowed to go to the Custis trail on either side of the circle.
