    How much of the trail in Banneker Park will be closed? All the way under Sycamore? If they stop the closure short of the trail spur to the dog-park lot, then that would be a more comfortable way to...

    This is the detour segment westbound. If you scooch over to Fairfax at the first trail exit after Harrison, you can build up enough speed on Fairfax to make the hill up to Kensington pretty much a...

    No and no. It was about 7am, no westbound users, I was rushing to make the walk signal, focusing on its timing, the Lee Hwy right turn lanes, and whether or not the trail entrance on the other side...

    While your point about letting actual cyclists review late-stage plans for cycling infrastructure is very well taken, when I went through east-bound this morning (admittedly at speed to make the walk...

    Steve is right. After all, it has been done before.

    It really depends on the style of recumbent, most so-called "short wheelbase" recumbents (those where the pedals hang in front of the front wheel) will fit in standard bike carriers. I use a...

    Duh! It just occurred to me the reason they will use all of Pennsylvania Avenue for the project is that it won't inconvenience any cars! If PA Ave was still open to cars they would have done it all...

    Geez, they need the whole entire width of Pennsylvania Avenue to replace the White House fence? Must be the same contractor as the one doing the Memorial Bridge restoration where they keep squeezing...

    Looked all clear this morning. I did not go through, but the downstream barricade was gone.

    I'm guessing it would not be illegal for a bike rider to proceed like a vehicle through the intersection, but that's not to say there won't be vigilante drivers providing substantial discouragement.

    They also need to widen the northbound bike lane north of 15th and around the bend onto 12th. It’s like only a foot wide!
