    Default Potomac Yard - Four Mile Run Trail Connection Construction

    Construction has begun on the South Park Short Bridge project which will provide improved trail connectivity between Four Mile Run Trail and Potomac Yard Trail. The project page is located at https://www.arlingtonva.us/Governmen...k-Short-Bridge

    A point of clarification, this won't really connect to the Potomac Yard Trail until they build the park at some later date. This phase 1 trail connection connects to the Route 1 side only.

    Won’t get rid of the switchback this phase but it’s pretty easy to get from Route 1 to the Potomac Yard Trail on the sidewalk or the road access behind the apartment building.

    I’m riding the long tail a lot these days and end up taking circuitous routes and crossing Route 1 to avoid the switchback.

    Default Potomac Yard - Four Mile Run Trail Connection Construction

    Work was well underway this morning. The desire path from the Route 1 trail was blocked by the plastic silt control fencing.

    “You kids get off my lawn!!!”

    Don’t worry. Just kidding, even though this is my back “lawn.”

    Glad to see this work taking place.

    [mention]Judd [/mention] , we snotty neighbors want you to know these are “condos” not “apartments” lest you believe we are so utterly plebeian as to be “renters.”

    (Again kidding.) And so far, I have heard nary a disparaging word from folks here at The Eclipse about the proposed changes. Hopefully no dissent will be forthcoming.

    Meanwhile, while Karen is stirring the pot over her lawn, construction has moved into the Alexandria portion of the park near the Four Mile Run Trail.
