    Default Sep 2020 Road & Trail conditions

    Did anybody sense a disturbance in the force this morning about 0815?

    I rode Crystal Drive southbound from 18th Street and didn't encounter any autos in the bike lane. I'm not sure what is going on.

    No pics yet, but watch for mud and debris on creek-side trails, esp. Four Mile Run. This is just down stream of Mt. Vernon Blvd bridge.

    Once again two warning signs for east bound drivers on S Glebe Rd were blocking over half the width of the 4MRT by the Long Branch bridge (9/11 about 12:30 pm). I didn't bother to Lumberjack them this time.

    Those mustíve been put out later in the morning. They werenít there when I rolled through around 7:30am. So annoying.

    An advanced technique for Lumberjacking these is to totally dismantle them and then stack them up neatly away from the trail.

    It might be good for the County to look at their policies for those types of signs. The sign in question could have gone up 50 yards further west on the grass.

    The crew putting it up declined to show the MOT or identify the project they were putting up the signs for when I spoke with them.

    As of today, PG Parks/M-NCPPC are still inspecting trails for damage following Thursday's storm. I've seen several bridges that appeared damaged from the flooding/debris.

    PG Parks/M-NCPPC posted the following advisory yesterday closing all trails in the Anacostia River Trail system:

    All trails in the Anacostia River Trail system are CLOSED until safety inspections can be completed
    9/11/2020 - All trails in the Anacostia River Trail system are CLOSED until safety inspections can be completed, due to the recent rainstorms and flooding. These trails include:
    NW Branch Trail
    NE Branch Trail
    Paint Branch trail
    Silgo Creek Trail
    Indian Creek Trail
    Bladensburg trail into Washington, D.C.

    Stay Safe!

    Also plenty of room in the curbside lane of the road.
