Trail along FMR - between WSO&D and MVT - who maintains?
Who maintains the trail along Four Mile Run between the end of the WO&D near Shirlington and the connection with the Mt. Vernon Trail along the river?
Reason for asking - the "joint" between the asphalt trail and the concrete elevated trail / bridge @ Four Mile Run Drive and S. Cleveland St. seems to be separating, such that, going eastbound, riders get a pretty solid impact going over the connection. It would be great to get that attended to before it gets worse. Who's the boss of that part of the trail?
We've mentioned this one before, Arlington's version of a speed bump. Kind of funny since that's where they had there big trail opening dedication. They had to "fix" it almost as soon as it opened, but it quickly got into its current state again. I should think that's Arlington County's responsibility.
I concur that it is one heck of a jolt, esp if one is travelling at night and don't see it ahead of time. I've had a few items go flying off my bike as a result. Ouch!
I've passed it along--I'll let you know if I hear something. Thanks!
For the record, the name of the trail along Four Mile Run is...the Four Mile Run Trail.
Wrecked here just this weekend
Yeah, well some of us lose more than just things flying of their bikes....I wrecked at that "speed bump" on Sunday. Saved myself from falling over, but hit the metal fence and crushed my left hand while struggling to stay upright.
No broken bones, but ow!
I really hate "THE BUMP," and am so sorry that happened to you! I've mentioned it to BikeArlington and BAC folks a few times over the past couple of years, but maybe not to the right people or at the right times.
I'm glad others have brought it up as well and that Tim is looking into it. It's showing itself to be a real hazard, even though it only really affects those heading eastbound, at least for now. It definitely should be fixed! I hope your hand feels better soon.
I hadn't heard anything so I followed up again.
And as always, anyone can report a problem they find on the trails! Details in this post: http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showth...-Trail-Problem
Would be the end of the Washington Old and Domminion Trail?
