    Map please?
    Yes, both directions. There's a map on post #7 in this thread.

    Before I had to stop riding, I was using Columbia Street to get around the Lee Hwy bridge so staying on that seems like a nice continuation.


    Honestly, the sight lines are not that bad. If you are uncomfortable crossing Roosevelt (which, I have a feeling you will not be once you actually see it), you can always ride the sidewalk down to cross at the HAWK signal.

    Anyone know when they are going to finish the work? The electronic sign says that the work will be in the month of May, which is long passed. The Arlington County page says that they will be finished in Q3 (I spend too much time thinking about GFY to know if Q3 is done or we are in the midst of it). I realize that COVID has slowed things down, but I was wondering if there was more information (and perhaps I am possibly looking at the wrong place on the county site for it). And can they update the sign?
