    Thanks. (Wrong Roosevelt typo not my worst recent name switch-up.) Did the 14th during daylight and Roosevelt after dark. Riding in clean air is such a luxury.
  3. Potomac River bridges open for bikes (Roosevelt, Memorial, 14th)?

    Could someone please tell me if FDR, Memorial, and/or 14th are open right now? I need to ride from MD <-> Arlington on 4/27. I'd like to avoid Key since its pretty crowded.

    Thanks.
