Watching the old cars navigate the bridge without lane markings is kind of trippy.

    How many points do I get?
    They've got it wrong, the bridge is not in Arlington!

    So I had not seen any info that the MVT would ever be closed for this--perhaps I missed it. Anyway, coming home from the DC United game last night sometime around 10:30-11:00, there were bright lights and equipment working and a sign saying the trail was closed ahead. The parkway was down to one lane and backed up a bit so I figured I'd grass it over to the road make the traffic deal with me since I had probably had about as much to drink as they had, but the workers waved me through at the stop sign and all was good in the end.
