    For the love of all that his holy and fun, at least leave me the downhill kicker heading west after the trail turns right at Uhle/the new(-ish) MOM's before climbing back up to the bridge to nowhere.

    Deal. Those of us wishing to avoid it can do so by crossing the yellow line if trail traffic is not too heavy.

    The resurfacing part appears to be done as of last evening. Pleasantly smooth surface to roll on.

    Next is, presumably, the line-painting part. I'll take the MVT again for the morning commute because it's a nicer view, and then swing by Cameron in the evening.

    There is broken glass on the W&OD at the sharp curve below Brandymore Castle. I picked up the larger pieces this morning, but it would be great to have it swept to get all the small pieces. Can someone inform the responsible jurisdiction?

    Alexandria's resurfacing craze has hit Eisenhower Ave. I didn't bother trying to ride across that this evening. Just walked the bike.

    Anyone know if the Arlington Blvd trail is still being detoured over Washington Blvd? (I haven't been that way in about two weeks). Wondering if I should just take dasgeh's awesome solution of going up Pershing to Fillmore and then the little neighborhood trail back down to Wash Blvd.

    Much improved as of yesterday evening. Nice and smooth, but there's line painting to be done, so be on the lookout for the painting equipment/workers.

    Cameron St. near King ST. looks practically done - new bike lane painted in and all.

    Default Columbia Pike/W&OD Crossing Made Less Safe

    (Arlington, VA) - At the W&OD Trail crossing of Columbia Pike at Four Mile Run Dr, the Leading Pedestrian Interval for trail traffic has been removed. Drivers turning right off Four Mile Run Dr across the trail do not have a sign saying that they need to yield to trail users (right-on-red is allowed here, too).

    Is there a reason from Arlington County why the decision was made to make this intersection more dangerous? (and yes, I know this is a loaded question)

    Hmmm. Maybe related to the gas line project on Columbia Pike?
