    Four Mile Run Work - Monday, 8/31/15

    Heads up! Four Mile Run Trail just east of 395 will be detoured on Monday 8/31 at 10am for a few hours for a bike counter install.

    No more details yet, but it should be minor.

    It's the rule--it's what we had in mind when creating this map Level of comfort was based off of motor traffic volume/speed and perceived safety.



    Why not both?

    This wouldn't be feasible for a document that is meant to have any sort of medium to long term shelf life. Arlington roads are constantly going through a cycle of repaving.

    Maybe? If the facilities actually make it feel safer? The example I like is the bike lanes on Wilson Blvd from Rosslyn to Clarendon are much less comfortable than riding on the parallel Key Blvd...

    That's not the case. Sorry if my wording came off that way.



    That would be very difficult to keep up to date with any accuracy, even with an online/interactive map.

    Didn't RideTheCity do that when it first started? They had the triangle with the dot you could move around to change the distance/hills/traffic attributes of a route. Not sure why they don't...

    Maybe I'm missing what you're saying, but the whole point of the comfort map is to minimize the bike facilities in favor of comfort. If someone wants to do route planning based on in ground...
