    I don't see anything on this site about reporting of pedestrian call buttons nonfunctioning or traffic lights not working properly. Am I missing it? I'm not inclined to use the telephone given...

    Eads St. markings - return date?

    Hi. Eads St in Crystal City was repaved in September, I believe, yet the lanes are still unmarked. No pedestrian crossings and no bicycle lane. Whereas my preference would be to stay on MVT and...

    Thanks. It might be worth improving the signage from the metro.

    Thanks to your map and directions, I made it without any wrong turns but there were a number of places where I think I got lucky.

    I'm sure I'm stating the obvious, but consider metroing out to Wiehle-Reston, at least one way, to cut off what you see too much of. It's a pretty fast trip from Arlington.

    Thanks again. I will try again tomorrow. Hopefully, I can better publicize this route through WAFC, which attracts a lot of car-light people out there. People are driving zipcars. There must be a...

    Wow, jabberwocky, That map is super helpful. Thanks so much. I got lost around where the stream comes down kind of at over 1/3 of x and up 1/3 of y if that makes any sense.

    Hello. FWIW, my two cents is that if I were going from the Pentagon to the W&OD, I would probably take the Pike, but just after Courthouse, would scoot to the right and take some combo of 8th, 9th,...

    Hopefully it would be less disproportional than the fee at Great Falls National Park where a 4,300 pound CO2 and pollutant emitting vehicle with two people riding in it costs less than 2 cyclists pay.

    Could you please point me to a current proposed map?

    I have a board meeting that night but may try to make 10/28. (Should be a fun night.) Can you remind me of the rough schedule?

    Is it just a total nonstarter to get a station at the Pentagon? I would guess that it is the largest bus station in NOVA and there are a ton of tourists there. If not there, then one at the bus...

    Sorry if I missed it, but I would nominate the 27 trail. Of course, not sure what I will do at MVT and Wilson Bridge. Get wet feet, I guess.
