    Did you miss the meeting? FEAR NOT.

    Weigh in with this County Online Survey on the project. In addition to answering the guided questions, I encourage you to make ample use of the free-form comments box at the end to hammer home some of the points raised below, or earlier in the thread, or whatever else speaks to you.
    - As Arlington's first 2-way PBL of any significant size, residents will judge all future PBLs on this one. It should not be overly narrow. Please expand to 12' wherever possible. Automotive turn lanes do not need to be 11' wide.
    - Allowing right turns across a two-way facility is potentially very dangerous. Please do not do this, or at least provide a leading bicycle interval with a dedicated bicycle signal to give cyclists a chance to get out where they are visible to turning cars.
    - Please provide dedicated queuing spaces for cyclists waiting for the appropriate signal to enter or exit the protected bike lane.

    Action shots of Bike Arlington Forum members looking at the proposed plan with great interest: https://www.arlnow.com/2019/06/26/co...ycle-corridor/ As the article's writer felt the need to immediately opine, the plan "might make traffic a little more congested". Fortunately, this is Arlington and not the dystopia of Alexandria, so my hopes are still high.

    I've certainly never said Seminary Hill/Seminary Ridge (assuming that is what you are referring to?) is NOT a suburban dystopia.

    That said, don't call this one a wrap just yet.

    Edit- back when we were discussing "issues" in Westover, I said this about Alexandria

    (much of Alexandria is not pedestrian friendly, but at least that's recognized as a problem by City staff, by our more enlightened electeds, and by a growing part of our electorate)

    Based on recent events, I can confirm that a growing part of the electorate sees a problem - the turn out for change has been heartening. Staff - well I think they do see the problem even if their solution was weak sauce. As for the elected, we will see what we will see.

    And let me add - that Arlington is doing what it's doing on Army Navy suggests good things are happening there (ditto the adoption of the bike master plan). Arlington as a jurisdiction may be doing better than it looked like to me in March.

    The two forum members I recognize don't seem to be taking any action at all.

    While there isn't a great deal of movement that would be visible in a photo; thinking, reflection, studying, cogitating, considering, contemplating, meditating, pondering, ruminating, consideration, musing, opining, and kvetching are all actions

    Exactly, seeing the picture I could feel the mental activity going on.
