    This is great that they are starting to plan widening of the W&OD. A couple things I noticed were:
    - The trail alternates between widening and the dual use trail. That would be problematic for...

    It says all these devices require a speedometer, which is not too cheap an add-on. Also I would be curious about using a speedometer with an electric skateboard. I guess you would have to carry it...

    Is there a reason the trail can't be kept open through the construction. I understand the need for a detour while it's being resurfaced and widened or adjacent work is being done, but that doesn't...

    That study is absolutely worthless for considerations about the W&OD or any other policy around Arlington/DC. That study was done around the University of Tennessee with e-bikes that have a top...

    That study on ebike speeds almost certainly was cherry-picked and has no basis in reality on the trails in the area. I routinely get passed by multiple ebikes daily, regardless of what Iím riding,...

    One of the unexpected side effects I'm noticing of the new Rock Creek connection at the Kennedy Center is a huge uptick in runners using the bridge (5-10X). Yesterday I even saw a couple tourists on...

    I went through it both ways today and have a couple comments:

    - The pavement is really uneven for a brand new section of paving. Compared to the sections of 4MR further east recently rebuilt,...

    This is a good endorsement for building an underpass that won't wash away in a flood and putting traffic lights where users actually cross, instead of between a garden and some woods.

    I understand there was preference for the Lee Hwy bridge, but this bridge would have been much easier to build alongside the I-66 widening, vice as a separate project.
  10. I would much preferred they use that developer...

    I would much preferred they use that developer funding to widen and put a barrier on the bridge just west of these buildings where you are directly exposed to Glebe Rd traffic. That is by far the...

    I ran through the intersection on the WOD this morning and purposely didnít push the beg button. The hand stayed red the whole time that 4MR had the green light.

    I agree, and Walter Reed is probably the worst of the W&OD intersections in Arlington. Knowing there are cyclists going through there helps while driving, but the bad sightlines plus lack of a...

    I haven't seen this crossing Walter Reed, but I have noticed the pedestrian/bicycle signal crossing for 4MR turns red well before the road light does - about 10 seconds before.

    If it's going to be awhile to get the underpass fixed, then serious consideration should be put into painting a crosswalk at Manchester where the curb cuts are and putting either a "stop for...

    This would definitely have some interesting use cases. The price may be off putting to those with lower priced bikes, but I could see these installed in a setting where those costs could be...

    If a car drove the wrong way down a highway and caused other vehicles to have collisions, but was not actually in a collision themselves, they should certainly be found liable as the negligent party.

    If the Wilson underpass isn't going to be fixed anytime soon, could they at least stripe a temporary crossing at the preferred location for crossing Wilson. The detour requires riding a narrow...

    Looking at the proposed re-striping plans for Lorcom and Military, neither are remotely in alignment with the NACTO standards in the Bike Master Plan for roads with that volume of traffic. Going by...

    If they geofenced parking areas, which I'd assume they would do if impoundment was actually a penalty for illegal scooter parking, they would have a pretty good idea where the scooter was parked and...

    Since the scooter companies have location data on all their scooters, it would be pretty easy to demonstrate you are committing fraud and have you criminally charged. It wouldn't be much difference...

    I like the idea of scooters and the dockless model, but there being scattered about is a serious safety issue, particularly at night or in periods of low visibility.

    My thought on regulating them...

    It seems like you'd need railroad crossing gates to prevent cars turning right on red.

    From VDOT's estimated counts, that part of Quincy St is 12k per day - https://www.virginiadot.org/info/resources/Traffic_2018/AADT_000_Arlington_2018.pdf. By NACTO that should require PBLs.

    The bridge over Spout Run is right next to the highway. Also the part coming out of Bon Air park.

    WWB is similar in length to the segments on I-66 inside the sound wall and has similar noise issues. There are a couple similar sections on the Custis trail where the trail is between the highway...
