    Unfortunately it seems that staff is leaning toward the OTHER option which is a flyover bridge between the W&OD and the Shirlington Connector that would go over Shirlington Drive. That option is...

    The Rosslyn Sector plan calls for connecting the South Side of the TR bridge to a trail to Rosslyn and to Iwo Jima. It'd be great to get NPS onboard with that.

    You can comment on it, but I suspect the NPS response will be "that's DDOT's jurisdiction". It can't hurt.

    Mapillary - Crowd-sourced Streetview

    I could have sworn I'd posted about this in the past, but now I can't find it. Just wanted to make a quick plug for mapillary.com in case you aren't familiar with it. It's like Google Streetview,...

    Ballston Metro will definitely have semi-secure bike parking once the plaza is reconstructed. You'll have to register your Smart Trip card to act as a key to the cage and key in and out, but anyone...

    No personal experience, but it appears from the County Board approval of the building that 4401 has showers, lockers and secure indoor bike storage and that 4301 is required to have access to 4401's...

    Agreed. And depending on where the property line is, you could conceivably get some more space for that curve if you do the equivalent of a "bulb-out" into the unnecessarily wide driveway apron.

    It's not as cut and dry as it might seem.

    You've got a T intersection where a huge majority of traffic is turning right. You've got a trail crossing parallel to the predominate traffic flow.

    Biked to Wolf Trap last night to hear Neil Gaiman. Just a quick update that little has changed and I can confirm the above advice.

    1) Biking to Wolf Trap is awesome.
    2) We stayed on-road except...

    This looks great, and would be amazing if paired with a contraflow lane on 7th and a bike phase of the light to get to and from it.

    Had an extra minute, so here's a map. I like the bright blue route, but orange is also an option (and it's more like I've drawn than what Google Maps shows).http://mizook.com/temp/5th%20whatever.png

    I stay on Quincy past both and turn left onto 5th Rd just past the park. Then you can noodle through the neighborhood streets over to Oakland. In my experience, less traffic down south of Wilson.
