    Hains Point loop closed to cyclists as the area is being used "to stage law enforcement assets", the golf course and parks remain open.

    The BikeDC reddit has a thread on the closure https://www.reddit.com/r/bikedc/comm...point_is_open/

    The first ford on four mile run trail north of Columbia Pike has been overflowing a lot lately, including when the stream is very low. This morning there was an excavator (or back hoe or some yellow vehicle with a scoop) trying to move rocks around. Hopefully this will allow more flow.

    Alas, it was flooded this morning despite the low water, so either they were doing something different or could not figure out that puzzle yesterday.

    Does anyone know what damaged the chain-link fence on the south side of the Goose Creek bridge on the W&OD? It is significantly out of shape.

    Ah, that explains the barrier across the stairs, I was wondering.

    Default Beg Buttons set to automatic

    So Arlington announced in April that the beg buttons had been set to automatic, meaning peds and cyclists didn't have to push the buttons. Well, in the past couple of weeks, the buttons finally were labeled telling potential button pushers that they didn't have to actually do so. Some are labeled so it is pretty obvious and others are merely labeled. Putting the label 18 inches above the button is probably not going to achieve the goal of eliminating the button pushing.
