    That would be a 3rd bathroom (a powder room). We live luxuriously here at The Eclipse at Center Park.

    More progress on the South Park Short Bridge project. Spoke to a contractor this morning, weather permitting, they hope to be finished with the paving by the end of next week. He wasn’t sure when the trail would be open to the public.

    Just tempering expectations here - if I recall correctly this is only going to connect over to Route 1 for now - the connection back to the Potomac Yard Trail won't come until the park itself is built in 2025.

    While there might not be a direct connection, I think some intrepid souls might replicate the desire path that was in place before construction began.

    The desire path is in the general vicinity of the new trail


    This part of the desire path is mere feet from the newtrail segment. The sidewalk leads to the Potomac Yard Trail

    The concrete trail is finished, but more work remains, before the trail will be opened.
