    I would also consider from that map:

    Boundary channel from Long Bridge to the connector from the MVT
    Oak St in Rosslyn for PBLs to connect with Wilson and Key
    Randolph Rd in Shirlington - PBLs...

    I donít think you could road diet that part of Walter Reed as rush hour traffic is pretty heavy all the way to Columbia Pike. Getting rid of the median allows for a wide enough PBL going uphill (say...

    Military Rd should definitely have PBLs even with the few driveways, and Lorcom Ln should put PBLs in strategically as well.

    The width of a PBL would matter more here. A narrow PBL with the lost space from the gutter could be really hairy to ride up, maybe worse than the current conditions.

    Ideally they would get...

    It was a nice day yesterday and there were lots of cyclists out of hibernation.

    Crystal Drive's NB on-street unprotected bike lane had 165 riders yesterday, which extrapolates out to 330 if you...

    100=8.33 dozen, i.e. a few dozen. The NL bike paths have thousands of riders per day. I even read recently that London had bike paths with over 13,000 riders per day, and London is nowhere near as...

    IME in the Netherlands, there was still a lot of conflict between peds and bikes in the bike lanes, though much of that had to do with crossings and intersections. The main difference in NL is a...

    I'm wondering why Nash St isn't considered as a connecting point to the Custis trail. Nash's bridge over 66 is pretty wide and has light traffic, vice trying to get what will probably be narrow PBLs...

    The Glebe Rd bridge does have one of the lanes barreled off for peds/bikes to use. Is there a reason you can't use that.

    Update: This morning when I was running by the intersection and waiting for the light, I saw and overheard five personnel from Arlington discussing the curb cut. A couple of them were not...

    On Seminary is the city looking at extending or putting a cycletrack on the north side to connect the bridge over 395. I don't remember where the first signalized crossing is, but I believe it's a...

    Bike paths or shared used paths are typically defined by having an exclusive ROW. Virginia Ln and Macarthur's cycletracks do not have exclusive ROW, however, their design makes them feel similar in...

    Most the PBLs that are in Europe donít look much different than what is in DC on Water St or 1st St NE. The big difference is building out the network of them, instead of the bits and pieces we...

    None of King St meets NACTO standards. With King St's traffic volume, they should have PBLs, not buffered lanes, unprotected lanes, or sharrows. King St feels like such a missed opportunity to...

    If you go by NACTO standards, you'd need to drop traffic volumes under 1,500 and drop the speed limit to 25mph to justify a shared road experience for cyclists. I believe Washington Blvd is upwards...

    The issue with one-way PBLs on this part of Washington Blvd is they will have to be narrow and part of that narrow PBL will be taken up by the gutter on the road. This may end up with a worse...

    Such a facility would have far more usage across a broader spectrum of riders than the current door zone bike lanes. If you look at the cycletracks in DC (e.g. Penn Ave, 15th St, or 1st NE), they...

    Checking the survey, it looks like VDOT is re-striping all the way east to N Frederick road, which is 11 blocks. I would recommend a 2-way cycle track the entire length on the south side, which...
