    Welp, shoot. That seems less than ideal, but they did get back to you more quickly than me!

    Can someone take a picture? The description seems to indicate that the County should establish a detour. I’m traveling so I can’t cruise by but I’ll raise some heck with my County reps tonight if it’s warranted.

    I missed the past two BACs. Was this project brought up for BAC input?

    Returning to the trail there seems pointless, since it's closed again a few blocks west. 21st is a pleasant enough route from Scott to Veitch.

    The only section where the pipe blocks the trail is where there’s no other space between the wall and fence. They’ve added lots of warning signs.

    And... further down where they’re doing construction they’ve put out a cooler with free water, and a sign apologizing for the inconvenience.

    Not sure I’d complain myself.

    Also the drivers of the work vehicles seem to be aware of the need to get off the trail to let trail users by as soon as they are past the narrow part.

    I didn't notice the cooler though. Could've used it today.

    Is it my imagination, or is there more construction this year all over the DMV than in past years? It seems like every ride which I make involves some sort of detour.

    No, this hasn't been discussed at the BAC.

    Man, this looks like great signage. After 2 weeks of emails, we can't get DPR to correct the paltry signage for the McCoy Park work. #SMH

    Part of Four Mile Run is going to be closed tomorrow related to the sewer bypass project. Trail traffic will be routes on to the sidewalk on Glebe Road. This section is essentially the piece that runs along the levee wall. From the project page:

    https://projects.arlingtonva.us/proj...ewer-relining/
    “On Wednesday, August 15 from 7am to 5pm, part of the trail will need to be closed between S Troy St and S Joyce St to connect the bypass pipe (weather permitting). Trail users will be detoured to the nearby sidewalk during this time.”

    What is the construction project on MVT north of the 14th Street bridge and south of Memorial Bridge? They have barges in the water for what looks like a major project that comes right up to the trail. I'm sorry if there is a post about this somewhere else but I couldn't find it.
