    Seems like you get a bit more visibility for a bit yet. Working with Arlington DES Bike and Ped Planning staff, I was able to raise the issue and learn that "It looks like some time before the fence will be installed. They [the project contractors] stated the fence supply will be over a week and discussing the design with the airport architect's. " He's checking to see what might be able to be done in the meantime, too.

    Thanks for looking out.

    I don’t go through there too often, but my recollection is that what made it hard to see oncoming trail traffic was overgrown shrubbery rather than any structures.

    There was a really large holly bush that made it hard to see around the corner there, especially if you're riding recumbent. It was removed during work.

    It looks like a bike share station has been installed there now. https://twitter.com/MtVernonFriends/...88666458128386

    There is indeed a Bikeshare station at Gravelly Point now. Gregory Matelsky took the honor of being the first person to dock there. He let me to be the first to undock.
