    For what are we advocating with the Lorcom/Military repaving and re-striping? I can think of a few improvements including taking out that right turn lane at Old Dominion and Lorcom and extending the bike lane from Trenton to Lee Hwy.

    I understand how that right turn lane affects you coming up Lee Highway/Old Dominion toward Lorcom, but whoo boy getting rid of that lane will get the pitchforks out. Not saying it shouldn't be done, but be ready for some WWE cage-style fighting.

    That's essentially traffic going through to Old Dumb to McLean. And no one cares what people from McLean think. Right Subby?

    I use that right turn lane all the time, in a car, to go from Arlington to Arlington. I could survive without it, but when I cycle that way, I don't feel that the right turn lane endangers me any more than I'd be if it weren't there. Maybe I'm missing something obvious. It happens.

    What right-turn lane are we talking about? I'm confused. I thought Subby's post was referring to this one (from Lorcom westbound onto Old Dom westbound), so that the bike lane could be extended past Old Dom all the way to Old Lee at Woodstock (i.e. to the Lee Heights Shops)

    That right turn lane is primarily a danger to people on foot crossing Lorcom with the green on Old Dom. Right turning traffic sometimes slows slightly, but not generally. I believe once this century someone turning right there looked to their right first before turning, but that may just be a rumor.

    Easy VDOT solution to that: get rid of the crosswalk!
