    They really should have just had the president leap into action in full action-movie glory.

    Oh my god the Custis "detour" in Rosslyn is amazing! Can we just leave it the way it is permanently (restoring the path for peds, of course)?

    YES! And extend it all the way to Cherrydale (where the third lane WB goes away).

    PS. If you like this detour and think that the detour when they fix the undulations near McCoy Park (Mom's), then now would be a good time to write des@arlingtonva.us and trails@arlingtonva.us to tell them.

    Pic of the detour for folks that don't go that way or haven't yet. I really enjoyed it, both uphill and downhill. Mode separation (if pedestrians remained inside the sound wall and bikes were outside, where the detour is now) would be a great thing through here. The downside is the diesel exhaust that gets caught along the sound wall. I nearly choked yesterday going up after a dirty bus. And of course, that area up against the sound wall could get hot during the summer, but it's summer, so Rule#9.
