    Default Good News on Infrastructure thread

    I would like to start this as a list of all new infra (or major rehabs) that support cycling in the area - bike lanes, cycle tracks, MUT's, bike boulevards, wide lanes, etc, etc. Across all jurisdictions in the metro area. For now I will start with links to existing threads - many such already exist in the road and trail conditions forum, and in the forums on Arlington, Alexandria, and FABB. I envision it as sort of a grand list of "good" news.

    I think it should probably be limited to things actually under construction, completed, or at least definitely planned and funded, as opposed to things still up for debate, or general jurisdiction wide plans.


    Eye Street (with its bike lanes) being repaved from SW to SE.

    They are basically repaving most the of 15th St Cycletrack from around K all the way up I think. Anyway, it's repaved up to at least Mass (I haven't gone north recently) and repainted, just waiting on the bollard-like things to come back:

    I'm told the Washington Blvd Trail Phase II is in "final VDOT review"

    VDOT's ongoing Route 50 / Courthouse Rd / 10th Street interchange project is hugely improving / extending the Arlington Blvd Trail in that area. Arlington is also applying for a State Grant to extend / improve the trail between Washington Blvd and the new VDOT section.
