    The temporary social-distancing protected bike lane on Tysons Blvd. is gone. Either the pandemic is over, or The Galleria could not countenance the loss of a driving lane during Holiday Shopping season.

    I call post Halloween boo sheet on this. Is it possible to make Tyson’s less bike friendly? “Welcome to Tyson’s. America’s Next Great City to die while walking/cycling!”

    Tysons at 8 am (way before the Malls were opening) has been pretty great. And joggers hate those roads I guess so even better.

    Observed along the bike lane on Potomac Ave this morning.

    Don't see a cake along the trail often (ever?)

    A week ago, I rode (or tried to ride) the Holmes Run Trail in Alexandria. There are still bridges out, and the "tube" under I-395 is still closed, all of which force multiple detours onto the other side of Van Dorn St. And into the traffic I was trying to avoid. What are Alexandria's plans to repair this by-now old flood damage?

    The city recently allocated 6 million in capital funds to perform repairs. Not sure when work will occur.

    Here’s a bit more detail on the $6 million

    Q: Is funding available to restore the trail?
    A: Yes. As part of the FY2021-FY2030 Approved Capital Improvement Program (CIP), $6 million was allocated to repairing Holmes Run Trail. $1 million is available for design in FY2021, and the remaining $5 million is available beginning in FY2022.
    . Currently, the city is projecting the trail won’t be fully opened until 2023.

    More information on the detour with some pictures can be found at the Holmes Run Trail Closures page.

    The city has recently been installing better detour signage.
