    Thanks. I didn't realize there were bike lanes on Heritage now also. On the whole it looks more comfortable than Americana.

    How do the road closures impact pedestrians and bicyclists? I see a lot of information for drivers, but are there any restrictions on pedestrians crossing at all the other intersections? Will I at...

    You know what would be even more useful? A bicycle route that is direct/straight, continuous across the county, and actually serves all of the businesses in this corridor.

    I typically use the sidepaths on Key Bridge itself, but I ride the roadways in Virginia (Lynn / Ft Myer) and DC (M St) leading to the bridge. So I use the downstream sidewalk inbound and the upstream...

    Have you considered taking the lane coming down that hill? That would make you much more visible to drivers, as well as give you more space to react to those who drive unpredictably.
