    These would be great. But if I interpret the map correctly, the blue roads are not on the paving schedule but rather happen to serve as boundaries between maintenance zones. Glebe would be VDOT...

    If space is an issue, a road diet with median removal is a nice solution. I have never seen any traffic congestion going up that hill. As long as thru-vehicles can get around those who are waiting to...

    Given the terrain, perhaps climbing lanes (both directions leading away from Vacation Lane) and downhill sharrows (both directions toward Vacation Lane)?

    Clarendon "Circle":

    It is unclear how much of this intersection the 2019 paving plan encompasses, but a painted bike lane through the intersection connecting eastbound Wilson into eastbound...

    A PBL (well daylighted at the intersections) would make the Superman Hill climb much more comfortable (Walter Reed northbound from W&OD to Pollard).

    Sort of. The new road Jeff Todd Way is also open to the public. It has a sidepath and zero intersections between Pole and Telegraph. I have never ridden on it though, so I can't vouch for its...

    Green arrow or green circle? If a circle, the driver certainly has no case. But an arrow would imply that the turning vehicles have ROW, and walk signals shouldn't be directing pedestrians to cross...

    But since...

    I think we agree more than we disagree. I agree with both of these points. Where separated infrastructure is installed, it needs maximal visibility. Daylighting can help; ideally there would be no...

    But WHY is ridership higher in cycletracks?

    Two reasons:
    1) a culture which prioritizes vehicle speeds over safety almost everywhere
    2) a poor understanding of the relative collision risks...
