    This is a fabulous thread. I had to look up "brevity comm".

    I was pretty happy to see that they filled in the manhole-sized pothole on the WB lane close to the fish market. I think I heard cries for help coming out of it once!

    We're not there yet... but I did think "MILLER TIME" as I exited the Eisenhower Connector toward Clarendon on my way home

    To add to the fun, there is a sign up today that Maine Avenue will be repaved from 10/3 to 10/11. Not sure how this will affect travel while it is going on.

    I am guessing it will mean a fair number of people trying out the PBL, even though its not "open". BTW, does that mean the construction will be done?

    The grand opening of Phase I is on 10/12. So they expect it to be done.

    I haven't really looked at the PBL since I have enough trouble dodging uneven pavement, construction workers, and whatever without having my eyes wander to the bike lane. Does it look like it is useable now?

    I bet it's obvious, but what is the PBL? I've only just started commuting into the jungle that is D.C. proper and haven't seen that one. If they're repaving Maine Ave on the 3rd, I should study up!

    I have put up with it for what seems like years. The Case Bridge is nice, did that today.

    I don't understand why DDOT didn't require the construction crew to block off the two right lanes completely. Letting the construction crews use the only remaining southbound lane for equipment moves and other shenanigans was dumb and dangerous and I had a few close calls.

    I am glad it is almost over and look forward to the cycletrack. I hope it does not become a sidewalk extension though.
