    Default Old Glebe Road Closed

    Old Glebe Road is closed at the intersection with Glebe Road due to water main construction. It looks like it will be awhile. There is a sidewalk, but it is very narrow with a fence against it and many pedestrians, so walking the bike is the only safe option if you want to get to Military Road.

    Or you continue up Glebe to the split up to Military. Get a good head of steam going before the uphill.

    Thanks for the heads up. That intersection's been a real mess since the water main break over a year ago.

    No it's not, I've been by there a couple of times today -- oh, you mean "North" Old Glebe Road and "North" Glebe Road. There is an intersection of (South) Old Glebe Road and (South) Glebe Road in south Arlington, too. It's a good thing you mentioned Military Road.

    Sorry about the confusion. Only in Arlington do you have two intersections of Glebe Road and Old Glebe Road. Keep Arlington (a little) Weird!

    Well, if you're old, like me, you could remember two intersections of North Pershing Drive and Arlington Boulevard. (If you count the service road, I guess there still are, but I'm thinking back before 50 went under George Mason Drive.)

    How about the intersection of S Joyce St and S Joyce St in Pentagon City?

    Nah, because there's only one such intersection. Now if there were an intersection of N Joyce St and N Joyce St....
