For those interested in an interesting solution, I posted this a couple of years ago. The beauty of it is that it requires no new bridges or tunnels and removes the conflict entirely. The ugly of it is that it requires a lot of players (NPS, VDOT, and a private landowner) to agree.

As long as you also talked about separating bikes from peds on the Custis...

There is also concern that such projects could divert investment from the core to the fringe in Rosslyn. But it's also possible that air rights development could encourage more activity in the center. So they are essentially saying it could be good or it could be bad. Hmm...
Anyway, it people are relying on such developments for improving the Lynn/Lee Hwy intersection, this might not be the best source of funding, not if it won't happen for 20 years.
