    Default Arlington 2019 Paving Map

    The 2019 Paving Map for Arlington County is up. Repaving is a great time to improve bike infrastructure (and streets generally). We'll discuss at the April BAC meeting, but for now, if you have ideas on improvements for the segments set to be paved, put them here!

    I'll start: N Quincy in front of W-L HS should have protected bike lanes

    Military Road north of Lee is far too wide -- narrow the road and provide good, continuous bike lanes (maybe protected - I'm actually not sure how many driveways we have there).

    7th St North west of Pershing should have a contraflow bike lane

    Extend the Wilson Blvd road diet west to the county line (McKinley).

    A PBL (well daylighted at the intersections) would make the Superman Hill climb much more comfortable (Walter Reed northbound from W&OD to Pollard).

    Clarendon "Circle":

    It is unclear how much of this intersection the 2019 paving plan encompasses, but a painted bike lane through the intersection connecting eastbound Wilson into eastbound Clarendon would be really helpful. Especially for those cyclists who come from eastbound Fairfax and jump onto the sidewalk at Northside Social in order to do that awkward box turn to reach eastbound Clarendon Blvd. Eventually I hope to see a fully continuous bike lane on Wilson/Clarendon all the way from Seven Corners to Rosslyn; this would be an importance piece of that puzzle.

    Given the terrain, perhaps climbing lanes (both directions leading away from Vacation Lane) and downhill sharrows (both directions toward Vacation Lane)?

    Not sure why this street has a 30MPH speed limit, but it should be redesigned somehow to support 25 instead.

    There's an entire plan for Clarendon Circle!

    Add a lane from South Glebe Rd from 4MR trail to S Walter Reed. Or at least from 24th Street to S Walter Reed.

    Also, assess crosswalk safety at the ramps to 395. Even pedestrians have a hard time crossing there.
