    The beg light for the W&OD trail crossing Catoctin Circle in Leesburg was malfunctioning this morning. Once I pressed it, it was fairly quick to give red lights to street traffic, but the white walk light never came on. And, no, I haven't reported it to anyone.

    If the Wilson underpass isn't going to be fixed anytime soon, could they at least stripe a temporary crossing at the preferred location for crossing Wilson. The detour requires riding a narrow sidewalk on both sides and waiting on a beg button for a light. The preferred path has curb cuts on both sides and the traffic volumes are reasonable, even at rush hour, for making a safe crossing. Considering their are other unsignalized crosswalks on Wilson, this shouldn't be a big ask.

    I tried the narrow sidewalk detour today. Grumble grumble grumble. Additional complication was a rectangular access cover on the north side sidewalk, at the crossing. It is *raised* all the way around, close to an inch. That's enough to cause an inattentive rider a fall.

    Hurry up with that concrete slab repair underneath.
