    Default July 2018 Road & Trail Conditions

    Starting this thread off with a note received about Custis Trail work:

    "On 7/13 AND 7/16, a contractor for VDOT will be inspecting the underside of the I-66 WB bridge at Custis Trail (between Westover Park and Bon Air Park). Work will start at 9:30 am and should be complete before 3:00 pm. Inspectors will be looking at and photographing the bottom of the bridge deck, with some inspection happening internally. Ladders to access the bridge will be present, as well as vehicle." We've been told any lane closures will be well-signed, but the trail will remain open during work.

    The rebuild of the bridge over Four Mile Run at Van Buren St. in Falls Church looks to be all finished, but the roadblocks remain. Any idea when it will open up for traffic again?

    I haven't heard anything recently, but will certainly send an email and see if any of ArlCo planning staff has heard anything. Project page says June of 2018, but there is a contact listed: James Mak at 703-248-5105 or via email at jmak@fallschurchva,gov.

    Update: I've been told the project is, as it seems, almost completed. There are a few more things happening, and then there needs to be a final walk-through with VDOT and relevant parties, but if all goes well, should be reopened within a week or so.

    It was open today, and I rode across it.

    ART closed this morning for some sort of digging project. Trying to get details. Laurie just called Bladensburg waterfront marina folks. WSSC is doing work in the area but was supposed to provide workarounds.

    There is an erosion run-off prevention fence set up between the MVT and the Potomac south of Memorial Bridge and the GWMP crosswalk. Anyone know what NPS is up to and whether it will affect the MVT?

    According to Twitter, GW Parkway is flooded at DCA. Likely to affect MVT as well.

    Expect any trail that floods to be flooded, by the looks of things. Also expect traffic to be a cluster.
