    Every time I think G Street east of the White House can't get any worse, I'm proven wrong.

    Tried out the new pedestrian/bike bridge by the Kennedy Center. It was great, a useful connection between the waterfront path and the Roosevelt Bridge path and a safe crossing of Rock Creek Pkwy.

    Hows the width clearance? So far I have only driven a car beneath that new bridge -- but it seems very narrow for bikes + pedestrians simultaneously?

    As someone who has seen it from the TR Bridge sidepath, it seems luxuriously wide.

    Width is fine, gradient is fine not too steep, but the design has some sharp 180 degree switchbacks. No problem on my morning commute when nobody else is using it at the same time, but might be an issue later in the daytime when people are also using it.

    Here is a recording from this morning's commute showing the new bicycle pedestrian bridge at the Kennedy Center

    I was surprised to see you connect to the TR bridge rather than continue onto the main street. That's going to make the TR Bridge suck more.

    I thought about this and let it sit overnight, and I still can't figure out why Dewey is making the TR bridge suck?

    I looked again this morning and it is also possible to not go up to the TR bridge path but when you pass the KC Reach building turn left and follow the path around to the entrance that becomes the sidewalk for the ramp to the KC underground parking garage. You could cross the ramp and ride up the road in front of the Kennedy Center plaza, but there is no crosswalk there and at 10am this morning the garage ramp had a fair amount of vehicle traffic from buses and delivery trucks so did not look very inviting, instead I rode up to the TR bridge path which I think the designers intended for bicycles.
