    Work is progressing on the cycle track on 4th Street NW & SW across the Mall.

    The District seems to be continually beefing up the barriers between the track and the traffic.

    What an improvement! The ball-busting pavement on 4th between Independence and Virginia Ave was jarring. Now itís smooth as silk. Still some taxis and construction vehicles blocking the lane at times, but overall massive improvement. Thanks, DC!

    Agreed, but IMHO, it was worse south of Virginia Ave.

    I typically travel on the part of 4th Street north of M once a week. When I was there last Monday, I noticed that there were indeed several vehicles blocking parts of the lane. If they install more barriers, it should help. It also may help if they just paint a bike logo every block. It is possible that some of the cars blocking just don't realize it is now for bikes. I am concerned that the construction vehicles on the east side of the block between G and I will tear it up again.

    I miss living in SW DC. Love the new bike lane up 4th st! Looks wonderful.

    Click on the photo for a closer look. The markings clearly show it is supposed to function like a circle, with all traffic traveling counter-clockwise.

    Another W&OD detour https://twitter.com/WODTrail/status/1310619472672284672

    Starting on or around October 5th, Dominion Energy will begin performing major line work along the trail between Sandburg St and Gallows Rd in the Dunn Loring area. The construction is expected to continue well into next year and will require a detour of the trail onto Iliff Dr.

    So that’s why they built the little trail extension on the east side of Sandburg St. to Iliff Dr.
