    People are trying, I guess, and that's great, but in the "year of the detour" it has been demonstrated that planners and engineers really need to walk or bike the detour routes, as well as consider the planned changes from the perspective of pedestrians and cyclists.

    The most baffling one to me was the placement of the walk signal in the middle of the Custis right in front of the curb ramp at Scott, but they've since moved over a few feet after complaints. Still a bit tight in there when pedestrians are present, but nothing a bit of slowing down won't cure.

    The 4MRT was open this morning, EB, though the sidewalk was closed.

    Correction to this. The detour sign was just after passing under Mt. Vernon, not just past Eads.

    Closure at S. Uhle St. this afternoon. No detour provided. Had to walk through the churned up dirt across the narrow strip left between where the trucks were parked and the road. It looks like they were building a mini-ramp so they could have another pipe or something cross the trail. Should be good for some BMX style stunts.

    Our friends at NPS, or at least their contractor, have taken stupid to a whole new level at 14th Street Bridge stairs.

    There are cones and aluminum troughs and poles strewn about making the stairs even narrower, and impossible to use the concrete ramps on the sides of the stairs.

    Does anybody at bikearlington or waba have contact info for project managers and other officials responsible for this shit? Its about time some of the incompetents in charge are held responsible for the constant devolution of this project.
