    Why can't they just ban parking and buses all along Ohio drive and tow anyone that parks there, at the golf course who isn't golfing or at the tennis courts who isn't playing tennis. That should...

    This. I had a women run into me from behind a couple years back on the MVT next to the airport, as she was following me close and I had to slow down quickly for a person walking slowly when there...

    I got an email and it looks like the Lee Hwy detour is opening back up to where the path is alongside the bridge again. I saw the new path last weekend and it was merely fenced off. This is a big...

    In the police department's defense, they probably don't have much to go on at this point, but do need to write a report that is factually accurate at the point in time and not speculative reasoning...

    I would like to see the northbound GW Pkwy rerouted to where Southbound Washington Blvd is now. Washington Blvd is 4 lanes wide through there and massively oversized for the amount of traffic that...

    The connector was negotiated in exchange for expanding the ANCC's clubhouse. That type of negotiation isn't much different than negotiating proffers with any development. Getting a connector all...

    Any taking requires reasonable compensation even if put in federal statute. In general the preference is going to be for negotiating a sale, vice having to go through litigation to get it. The...

    Condemnation goes through a court, so it’s still in DODs interest to negotiate a deal. The condemnation limits the county’s ability to walk away, but not to negotiate.

    The county had plenty of leverage in the land sale and didn't use it initially. Considering DoD agree to the cycle track after the fact, I'm sure they would have agreed early on with little push...

    Wards 2 and 6 cover downtown, the mall, and most the major employment areas in DC. Increasing bicycle accessibility in those employment centers is key to increasing bike commuting and should...

    Looks like they kept the 35mph speed limit, which IME is 45-50mph on that road. They really should road diet Joyce just for that.

    The side paths are tolerable, though a separate cycle track...

    Joyce St under 395 between Army Navy and Columbia Pike doesn’t have a PBL or trail. There’s a wide side path for about half the length, but the rest is beat up sidewalks or riding in very high speed...

    Quincy St was watered down before it even got to the public for discussion - it had gaps in even the most bike friendly design which was not even up to NACTO standards, which it's supposed to be per...

    If Arlington were building PBLs across the county similar to 15th St NW, that would be a massive evolution from what they are doing today and I probably wouldn't have much issue with the weak...

    There's a common perception that many of the bike lanes are largely used for recreational riding by the lycra crowd, vice transportation. This is going to happen where there are gaps in the network...

    This type of language is what a lack of leadership looks like. Either there's no buy-in from senior leaders on vision zero or those senior leaders have no ability to lead themselves. Considering...

    I'd assume either rebuild schedule will necessitate the closure of the 4MR trail underpass, with a best case scenario that the adjacent sidepath on S Glebe stays open. In the complete closure option...

    I don't think it's a drainage issue, though widening the path may have left less surface area to absorb rainwater. The asphalt has been really uneven since day 1, making me think it's a mix of...

    If a biking project is to work, Alexandria will have to be involved in putting bike lanes or a cycle track on W. Glebe. It won't do much if just Arlington puts in a bike facility.

    This seems like a bait and switch then. Promise a replacement tunnel to get cyclists and recreational users on board with the purple line and then cut it later in the process.
