    So the tool to tell the county about trees works. (or someone called it in)

    Crystal City Connector at the Water Park was a shit show this afternoon. The contractor dug a trench across the ramp down to the tunnel. Gotta love this stuff.

    I logged a service ticket with Arlington. Remains to be seen what happens.

    Inspection at noon today shows no real improvement. Developer is aware and is working to get trail reopened. Some in ArCo seem to feel that MOT allowed a "walk your bike" segment

    Ridiculous if the county pre-approved this. I get the feeling there's just an "anything goes" attitude when it comes to work associated with "National Landing."

    I've submitted several tickets about steel plates covering utility trenches on Crystal Drive south of 18th. They're often placed at odd angles to the direction of travel, not spiked down, and there are no asphalt edge "ramps." All at odds with best practices. Several times I've noted multiple plates stacked. Easy enough to spot during the day I suppose, but a hazard for the unwary, those riding at night, or in the rain.

    On the goods news front, upgrades to facilities along the W&OD. New non-"winterized" water fountain with bottle filler at Smith Switch, several new porta-johns, and new mirrors at mm 33 on either side of the Leesburg Bypass underpass giving a pretty clear view of what's been hiding under there all these years. Now, how about for the Carling Springs Underpass along 4 Mile Run?

    W&OD closed at Custis intersection. Short trail repair section at the 4MR bridge just east. Detour up Custis and around Bon Air.

    They're making progress in Bon Air Park. Trail opened up outside of working hours.

    Any updates when the Rock Creek tunnel bypass is going to open? I thought it was supposed to open by end of July but can't find any updates anywhere.

    I saw on Twitter somewhere that it was delayed because of a supply issue with the railings. Someone posted a picture yesterday showing the railing being installed, so it should hopefully be soon.
