    Not necessarily -- we're in FY 2022 now and FY 2023 begins next July. If the City is willing & able to spend money on design before FY 2023, we could be looking at "just" one year of complete...

    Thanks. I wrote CaBi again yesterday, asking about my request status.

    Minor fail: despite my doing this by replying to the last email I got from the ticketing system per its instructions ("To add...

    Such awful online customer service from CaBi. It's been a full week since I last wrote CaBi about my trouble renewing with an employer-provided code, and they have not replied at all. This is so what...

    I'm sure you won't be surprise to hear that the initial response to my support request included a new set of instructions that also did not work. Those instructions have seven steps, and I couldn't...

    Thanks, Henry.

    Here's another one: the "corporate membership" info on https://help.capitalbikeshare.com/hc/en-us/articles/360039402571-Renewals is also out of date -- it says to log in to...

    Amen. I'm not sure how well that could work -- for years my employer has provided benefits by handing out "coupon codes". I guess all they should need to do is keep track of the purpose of each...

    Let's not forget the awfullness of the website now insisting that you have cell phone service and use (insecure) SMS text messages to log in, rather than providing your account password over an...

    Agree to disagree. The hole had been pretty effectively blocked with an impressive combination of cones, caution tape, and one of those steel barricades, and I've never seen unsupervised kids in 4MR...

    Yesterday I rode by there for the first time in weeks. The surface of the now closed bridge looks as it has since late May -- the damage doesn't seem any worse, they've just closed the bridge,...

    Well, the county is a co-owner of Capital Bikeshare; Motivate/Lyft is just the management company. Your tax dollars at work.

    I'd call the police who I expect have experience removing bicycles that are improperly located. Good luck.

    Rebar rusting out, perhaps aggravated by recreation and police staff driving over that bridge repeatedly? Recreation seems to use full-size trash compaction trucks to collect the bags from the few...
  13. Holmes Run Trail restoration meeting Wed, July 28 6:30pm

    Last week the City announced a public meeting about HRT repair work. It looks like the most comprehensive info that's available now is this page from Transportation & Environmental Services which...

    $1500???

    Well, FWIW the City webpage baiskeli cited in 2019 said of general pedestrian LPI that "Localities across the country and around the world (including Alexandria) have been implementing this solution...
  16. I could be mistaken, but I think that only...

    I could be mistaken, but I think that only regards the adjustments to the timing of the roadway and pedestrial signals. I'm pretty sure the R9-5 "[bike] USE PED SIGNAL" signs only appeared this year,...
  17. It'd also be nice if the MUTCD clarified whether...

    It'd also be nice if the MUTCD clarified whether this sign only means bicyclists may start early, in the LPI phase, or if it's also true that they must obey the Don't Walk ped signal, which tends to...
  18. Are you saying that in Alexandria (or all of...

    Are you saying that in Alexandria (or all of Virginia?) a cyclist can bike through a red light if the pedestrian walk signal is on? If so, please cite a reference! I knew that to be true in DC but I...

    "A picture would help as I don't see these signs often"

    This is at the corner of Cameron and West:

  20. legal basis of "Use Ped Signal" signs in Alexandria? public outreach?

    I keep seeing new traffic control signs around town with a bike symbol and the words USE PED SIGNAL. This is MUTCD sign R9-5 which "may be used where the crossing of a street by bicyclists is...

    So... you wanna borrow my soldering iron next? ;-)

    [I'm glad to hear it was relatively successful.]

    Unless folks offset the reduced lethality per mile by travelling more auto miles. Autonomous cars promise to remove the tedium of driving. Heading to the far side of the District at rush hour? Who...

    Best part of this is that the Banjo Brothers bags use closed triangles for the lower "hook" and therefore unlike old-school panniers with "S" lower hooks don't get caught on the cart. Only problem...
