    But this was exactly that negotiation. You stated before that the cycletrack should have been agreed to in an earlier agreement (sale). There was none. Arlington negotiated with the DoD to get the...

    Thanks. It's hard to be clear here, but that map definitely helps.

    Do you mean (1) the crossing of the 2 lanes (which has at times been narrowed to 1 lane bc construction) going to Memorial Bridge, (2) the crossing of the one lane connecting 27 to the GWMP (the...

    There was no land sale to ANC -- This is a taking by the federal government. My understanding is that the push came from staff -- yes, we've spoken up in support of ArlCo staff but ArlCo staff has...

    Southbound from Fairfax-Glebe is a shit show - it was designed 2017-18 and implemented 2018 -- before the revised Bike Element called for better. The post-Bike Element project was Fairfax - 13th --...

    I think we should remember where we are in the process: we are defining goals for the Vision Zero program to start to develop an action plan. This isn't the action plan. "Strive to" makes sense for...

    Arlington doesn't have any now. This will be a new team. The proposed budget does not assume any revenue from these positions -- any money that comes in can be allocated during the fiscal year, and...

    The trail through Long Branch Nature Center that connects Carlin Springs to the Four Mile Run & W&OD Trails is closed. No detour. No indication why. People have been asked.

    Ritch, and I've already heard back that they've spoken to the contractor. Work will be done next month, which will require the trail to be closed for a few days - the detour will be the new sidewalk...

    Thanks, everyone, for reporting it to this thread. I made ArlCo aware of this thread, and they're looking into it. The answer I got was that the developer is responsible for it, because it was a...

    First, we need the bike station that was promised for the Ballston station.

    Second, we need secure parking (cameras might be enough, but they need to work), that is covered, and that works for all...

    I'm not an expert at this area, but from my experience, the tunnel is the difference between a trail that could serve all ages, and one that only serves current riders. Seems like a difference worth...

    You don't. If you have a chance to have a nice conversation, that may work, but you have no hope of convincing someone they're doing it wrong in 2 seconds, and, luckily, it's not your job.

    I have biked a lot for a long time, and I do not think a blinking light helps identify bikes. It just makes it hard to tell how far away you are.

    What's tough is that I see Arlington getting *better* but, the pace is very slow, and they're not getting good enough fast enough. That's a hard line to walk -- "thanks for installing a PBL on...

    There's no good answer -- it's definitely better to be blinking around cars, and better to be steady on the trail. You know what your commute is like and where the danger is. Do what's best for...

    My guess is that the scofflaw drivist at Lee & Oak knew what he was doing was wrong and did it anyway. No amount of signage will help that. From what I've seen, drivists are obeying the new signal...

    I love this change. When I'm riding downhill, I can confidently proceed with the walk sign, without worrying a car will whip a right turn into me (it's happened). Now cars get to go when cyclists...
