    So the Key Bridge inbound route is nearly blocked by a huge sign announcing a future road closure, and the TR Bridge route is nearly blocked by downed foliage. Heckava job, DDOT.

    Which side of the Key Bridge? Downstream?

    Yes, the sidewalk in front of FS Key Park as you come off the bridge. The one thatís already too narrow for for foot and bike traffic.

    I have started dropping off the curb before this; took the lane once this week also to avoid it, but don't feel I'd survive long doing that every day. No way a recumbent or kid-trailer-whatever-bike would fit through there with that sign placement, which made me use curse words when I saw it still there this morning.

    Me too. The granite curb and the rain make it extra fun.

    Maybe we can get them to explain why they don't think it's a good idea to put signs warning of sidewalk or bike lane closures in the general travel lanes, and then ask why that logic does not work the other way around.

    I can confirm the TR Bridge blockage has been removed.

    RT7 detour in Falls Church, between West Falls Church Metro and Tysons Corner(See this Google map). West bound traffic is blocked, and detoured through the parking lot where Trader's Joe is, which makes it very difficult to use the already hard to use sidewalks there, so use the eastbound side before that. It's unlikely that they will fix it by evening rush hour.
