    Default WOD Repaving at Bluemont Park this Friday

    From the NVPRA:

    Just a heads up that this Friday a contractor will be repaving a small section of the W&OD at Bluemont Park. This is the area just east of Wilson Blvd. If I could trouble you to pass this along to all relevant parties for their info. Thanks!
    Good news--I believe this is the little mogul section that has been in bad shape for the past 6 months or so!

    My sense of direction is terrible, but I hope this is the portion of the trail where they have spray painted around the bumps.

    It's been alot longer than 6 months. It's been bad as long as I can remember, and that's a long time.

    Glad to hear their fixing that spot. I hope they don't cut any roots though, that can cause trees to fall.

    They're taking out the traffic calming?

    I'm pretty sure the trees are about ten feet from the trail on the stream side at that location and may be more at risk of being undercut by the bank erosion. I'm also going to miss this speed control for those approaching the Wilson Blvd underpass.

    More than 6 months...at least 2 or 3 years, perhaps longer. I can't remember a time they weren't there.

    Though I'm a little sad that I'll never see them again.

    I can introduce you to some one Custis to ease your pain.

    I call them my "morning cup o' joe". They'll wake you up real quick if you're riding whilst sleepy.

    Glad that is finally being adressed. Hope the section of the Custis by Washington Blvd is next.
