    The bridge is comprised of two structural precast "Ts." The repairs are needed to address the joint between the Ts. Kind of a crappy design, in my design, with persistent maintenance issues, especially if there isn't enough positive camber in the Ts to provide decent drainage. Has to drain to each end thanks to the curb.

    And, what is it with Alexandria and out-of-service bike/ped facilities?

    One hell of a brave bear, crossing GW parkway there.

    Big dead carp on Four Mile Run Trail not far from the intersection with the MVT.

    A few years ago I saw a bald eagle on the FMR trail near Arlandria. Maybe a bald eagle had the fish in its talons and dropped it.

    Pretty embarrassing turn of events on the bridge project in west Alexandria. For the past week or so, no signs of any progress at all. Then today, on Alexandria's project webpage, a brief note that the project is on hiatus due to "material shortage".

    Then, down at the bridge itself, the project poster has had the completion dates taped-over, an apparent white flag from the city.

    This is very frustrating because the bridge was perfectly functional up until the moment the city closed it down for repairs, and now an important connector from the Duke Street corridor to Taney Avenue is closed off indefinitely.
    The Beatley Bridge has reopened..

    Per NPS National Mall Twitter feed, as of this morning, the trail underneath (through?) the TR Bridge is now open. I hope to check it out after work.
