    They get all of their money from Appropriations, I believe. I don't know how specifically the budget is directed from Congress.

    That's totally fair and nobody is arguing with you. I have said in each post that it's reasonable not to feel comfortable with these crossings. Just please stop with the "people DIE" language, and...

    I completely agree. However, saying:

    is alarmist and untrue. That's what my comments were directed towards.

    Also, you usually write very well considered posts. You say here that you play the...

    This a pet peeve of mine: There are not many cyclist deaths in Arlington. Not at the crossings of the GWMP, not at the Intersection of Doom, not on the roads. Posts like this could very easily be...

    Short answer:

    Or read the minutes afterwards.

    Long answer:

    Basically, though the EFC project is on Sycamore street, and the Washington Blvd project is separate but in the same area.

    Is something wrong with Barton? (Ice covered or something?) Yes, there's a hill, but it looks worse than it is.

    File under: Things we will discuss at Monday nights BAC meeting. It may sound boring to discuss the budget, but things like snow clearing and trail building have to be in the budget to get done.

    No GWMP crossings, just one on-ramp, but I haven't had problems with it (it's worse on the Lincoln side of the bridge).

    I'm hoping to stop by. It would be awesome if someone could update either here or on the Facebook page whether the new Rte 50 trail is passable tomorrow.

    Also, if you just type "50 and n pershing dr" into Google maps, you get the WRONG one. The zip for the right one is 22201 - that would clear it up for g-maps.

    Yeah, I figured it out, but you may want to be more clear on the other promotion sites (eg Facebook)

    Since I didn't see a report, I'll confirm that the Custis is beautiful and lovely and clear of unavoidable ice floes (there are a few patches of ice, but they are easy to deal with) from Cherrydale...

    It doesn't help when one of your longest riders goes on travel :-(

    Really, though, we need Bill and Erin to ride a mile every day. A sleaze ride only takes 10 minutes. Otherwise, we've got to...

    There are two intersections of 50 and N Pershing, and for the life of me I couldn't figure out why you would want to do an event over near my kids' preschool... You may want to be more clear that...

    Those are great shots. I hope you'll use them to alert powers-that-be to the problem. Congressman Don Beyer and Senators Kaine and Warner might be good places to start.

    I'm somewhat hopefully that if it's really warm and rainy for long enough, the water will clear the TR Bridge. But if it doesn't, you have two options: Key or Memorial Bridge. M really isn't that...
