    A friend told me that those signs are really easy to fold up and that once folded they fit perfectly in the narrow shoulder on the roadway without obstructing the travel lane.

    Not these. The orange one has a wooden base -- at least they tried to get the sign higher, but the base still takes up half the trail. The white one is attached to the railing. If we could only fold up the railing and put it in the shoulder.

    I tweeted at DDOT. If you could tweet the pic of the white sign (I only had a pic of the orange one), that would be great. @dasgeh

    I shared my larger images of the signs with @DDOTDC just now.

    On the graphic describing closing of the Memorial Bridge and alternate routes, I'd upgrade the Teddy from "Terrifying, but usable" to "Mostly Harmless" with the addition of these signs.

    Tree down on Custis just east of Monroe. MVT flooded north of Memorial Bridge. Adventure commuting.

    4MR flooded. https://twitter.com/TheDCPope/status...28294258606082

    Was clear of water pre-dawn this morning, but a mess with debris.

    Two trees down but not blocking the path just west of St Ann's school on the Custis Trail (N Harrison-ish).

    That was a fun bike in this am.

    When I rolled through at 8am it had some decently deep looking water through that entire segment. I turned around and took Eads St to 18th to the CC Connector, which was thankfully quite dry. The water under Route 1/GW Parkway bridges is filthy. I've seen needles and all sorts of other trash wash up on the trail there so I try to avoid it when it's flooded.
