    Today, The large sheet of Plexiglass had been removed from the bike lane, but there are fairly large shards of the stuff spread starting close to the S. Glebe/Potomac Ave intersection and extending for about 100 meters. They need a street sweeper to make a pass to get it all. I'll see if I can submit a report as well and with photos.

This is the last phase of the sewer line project. immediately after we will start removing the big black pipe which hopefully should take us about 3 to 3 1/2 weeks.
    Dumpster was moved when I rode by this morning.

    Greenbelt plowed the connector path on the commuter route from Old Greenbelt up toward Ivy Lane and Metro station and College Park area. Kudus for getting on it day 1.

    I was driving down Shreve Rd and saw the blower working the W&OD going west. It looked like the trail was pretty clear east of there going into Falls Church City.

    Was just gonna post this:
    Custis entrance at N Wakefield is apparently blocked...by the snow from the team clearing the trail I think.

    "Arlington peeps. Looks like DES plowed snow and blocked the trail entrance. And parksand rec didn't salt or plow this section of the custis. How am I supposed to get to work tomorrow??!! (rhetorical) I could shovel the trail but I'm not sure about the mess the plows left behind."

    She said she tweeted at various Arlington agencies but heard nothing. Any ideas? Besides clearing it herself?

    Montgomery County did a gorgeous job plowing its section of the CCT. Of course, with the National Park Service closed, the DC section is completely impassable.

    The MBT is in pretty good shape from Franklin to R, decent shape (at least one side passable) from R to NY Avenue, and an utter disaster from M to Florida.

    Mix of conditions out by where I live near Shirlington. Sorry for the sideways pictures--the forum is rotating my images for some reason.

    My neighborhood in Alexandria is great, and so are main roads from what I can tell, but Arlandria/N. Del Ray has some pretty sketchy neighborhood roads still. Mt. Vernon Ave sidewalk between 4 mile run park and 4 mile run trail is covered in ice and slush. It's probably not rideable based on the theory if you fall you'll go right into traffic. I walked my bike along that section. The trail through Four Mile Run park is plowed and in great condition.

    4mrt between Mt. Vernon Ave and where it runs along Glebe is great. Once you get to Glebe though it's almost impassable on bike. It looks like the road crews plowed the snow up onto the trail. I forgot to take a picture sadly since I was busy walking my bike across it (and even that took some effort). It becomes a little better (and rideable, if you go slow) after it turns away from Glebe. The little bridge the construction crews made has about a foot of snow on it. The trail is on and off covered in snow, ice, and who-knows what until 395. My concern is that by morning, the slush which is currently rideable is going to turn into very un-ridable ice. Then it clears up and becomes nice again.

    Under glebe is a HUGE puddle, which may turn into some nasty ice tonight.

    The bridge from Shirlington to Alexandria is pretty sketchy on the up and down, but SO MUCH FUN to ride across.
