    No, this hasn't been discussed at the BAC.


    Man, this looks like great signage. After 2 weeks of emails, we can't get DPR to correct the paltry signage for the McCoy Park work. #SMH

    My map will give you a lower stress route. If you don't mind it, just take the lane then bike lane westbound on Lee Hwy westbound (that's what I do).

    So in Virginia, it's clear they are NOT motor vehicles and VA law allows them on trails; the debate is whether ArlCo (most trails; almost certainly not), NVRPA (W&OD Trail; pretty definitely not), or...

    Police direct traffic in Rosslyn in the mornings, so it wouldn't be unprecedented. Please let ACPD know what you saw and any suggestions you have -- police@arlingtonva.us

    I had to run to Mom's yesterday. There were some issues with the signs, including a point where following the signs from Veitch and Lee to Vance, then Adams, you would see signs pointing you back to...

    And... if you have a moment to write trails@arlingtonva.us to describe your experience, especially if it could be done better, please do. I'm not confident they realize the impact of their mistakes.

    So many things wrong with this post. On side lighting - the little bit of light coming through slits on front facing lights isn't enough. You need something more substantial, lighting up your sides....

    The Intersection of Doom is not on that map. It's the intersection of Lynn St and the westbound lanes of Lee Hwy/the off ramp from I66 (the eastbound have their own light there). The Custis Trail...

    Scott - Veitch doesn't get your around the trail work, which is west of Veitch. You could take Scott - Veitch to avoid going on the sidewalk/trail beside Mom's, but it's like double the distance and...

    I don't see how NVRPA can violate state law, so W&OD is fine (and ACPD agrees).

    DC law says:

    If a bike lane is a "bicycle route", ebikes aren't allowed, but I don't see that in the law. ...
