    Default April 2021 - Road and Trail Conditions

    Starting a new month....

    The Rosslyn Monolith was counting today!

    And a beaver paused and waited for me to pass on 4MRT before it crossed the trail (between 4MR and the pond (up on the other side of W&OD) near Glen Carlyn Park. Better behaved than the geese and many pedestrians.

    The Monolith counted me yesterday (Monday) evening. I guess groundhogs aren't as polite as beavers.

    This is a problem.

    Since the spot was marked with paint, I must assume NOVA Parks know about this. What are their plans to repair?

    Does anyone have an update on the status of White's Ferry? The latest that I read was that it was sold and the new owners wanted to reopen it.

    The new owners of the ferry, and the owners of the farm where the landing is, have not yet reached a meeting of the minds.

    It sounds like the owners are at an impasse. Chuck Kuhn, the new owner of White's Ferry, wants to either purchase the Virginia land site or negotiate a permanent easement with Rockland Farm. The owner's of Rockland Farm are insisting on a $0.50 fee per car. Recent coverage said Chuck Kuhn is asking Virginia to pursue eminent domain.

    Sorry about the dislike. My error, although I dislike the progress.

    Last month, I logged a service ticket with ArCo about cars parked in the bike lane on South Eads. Seems people visiting the Arlington Transit yard were using an abandoned driveway apron at the treatment plant for parking. For reasons unclear, it didn't get the flex post treatment the rest of the southbound bike lane received.

    This morning on my way to HDCC, I noticed the area was sporting some new flex posts.

    Thanks DES.
