    Putting out cones for areas that people could walk/bike safely during this pandemic would be a great use of DOT personnel's time. They are not nearly as busy operationally dealing with accidents,...
  2. The issue is safe social distancing on all those...

    The issue is safe social distancing on all those routes, not having epic bike rides. One of my main running routes is along 4MR, which before had very light traffic most any time of the week. Now...
  3. The problem with some parks closing is it’s...

    The problem with some parks closing is it’s exacerbating the problem elsewhere. The better solution is to open up more spaces for people to go and be able to spread out. MVT is too crowded, shut...
  4. Just because a on-road route exists doesn’t mean...

    Just because a on-road route exists doesn’t mean it will be used by all but a small minority. It’s a barriers to entry issue, so people are going to go with what they know or can easily find. ...
  5. A 30+ turn cue sheet through windy roads with no...

    A 30+ turn cue sheet through windy roads with no way-finding is going to be bit much for all but the most dedicated. The rest will simply continue to overwhelm the W&OD and MVT where they can simply...
  6. This is fine for a confident rider, though I...

    This is fine for a confident rider, though I doubt the general public would ride this route, let alone even discover a route like this. The general public is either going with what they know (e.g....
  7. I don’t consider sidewalks a safe way to ride,...

    I don’t consider sidewalks a safe way to ride, particularly if you consider needs to socially distance.

    High speed road - for me any multi-lane with speed limits of 35+. Typically cars are going...

    I’m looking at how to accommodate average cyclists who aren’t going to be comfortable dealing with most of Fairfax County’s high speed roads. While some neighborhoods can be biked from, there are a...

    In Fairfax County much of Annandale, Springfield, and Mclean are largely un-bikeable and have limited areas to pleasantly walk outside their immediate neighborhood, unless you enjoy walking/biking on...

    The problem is that large swaths of NOVA are not easily accessible to parks except by going on a major highway (e.g. 29, 123, 50, etc.). They have no choice but to drive to parks to go walking,...
  11. The problem with closing some of the parks is it...

    The problem with closing some of the parks is it crowds the ones that stay open - e.g. everyone that can no longer hike on the Bull Run trail because they can't use the parking lot are crowding other...

    This direction is a bit odd as the governors order doesn’t ban going to parks, and fishing is explicitly called out as being allowed at beaches.

    Considering some of the NOVA parks are hard to...
  13. Why can't they just ban parking and buses all...

    Why can't they just ban parking and buses all along Ohio drive and tow anyone that parks there, at the golf course who isn't golfing or at the tennis courts who isn't playing tennis. That should...

    This. I had a women run into me from behind a couple years back on the MVT next to the airport, as she was following me close and I had to slow down quickly for a person walking slowly when there...

    I got an email and it looks like the Lee Hwy detour is opening back up to where the path is alongside the bridge again. I saw the new path last weekend and it was merely fenced off. This is a big...

    In the police department's defense, they probably don't have much to go on at this point, but do need to write a report that is factually accurate at the point in time and not speculative reasoning...

    I would like to see the northbound GW Pkwy rerouted to where Southbound Washington Blvd is now. Washington Blvd is 4 lanes wide through there and massively oversized for the amount of traffic that...

    The connector was negotiated in exchange for expanding the ANCC's clubhouse. That type of negotiation isn't much different than negotiating proffers with any development. Getting a connector all...

    Any taking requires reasonable compensation even if put in federal statute. In general the preference is going to be for negotiating a sale, vice having to go through litigation to get it. The...

    Condemnation goes through a court, so it’s still in DODs interest to negotiate a deal. The condemnation limits the county’s ability to walk away, but not to negotiate.

    The county had plenty of leverage in the land sale and didn't use it initially. Considering DoD agree to the cycle track after the fact, I'm sure they would have agreed early on with little push...

    Wards 2 and 6 cover downtown, the mall, and most the major employment areas in DC. Increasing bicycle accessibility in those employment centers is key to increasing bike commuting and should...

    Looks like they kept the 35mph speed limit, which IME is 45-50mph on that road. They really should road diet Joyce just for that.

    The side paths are tolerable, though a separate cycle track...

    Joyce St under 395 between Army Navy and Columbia Pike doesn’t have a PBL or trail. There’s a wide side path for about half the length, but the rest is beat up sidewalks or riding in very high speed...
