    Airport station is happening, still coming to some legal agreements. Gravelly point still in negotiation, NPS keeps rejecting various proposed sites. TR island still in negotiations, NPS seems to have tentatively agreed to a site.

    Pentagon going nowhere, Air force memorial going nowhere.

    Because we can't affect the splendor of the portapotties.

    Only portapotties are allowed to obstruct the historic viewshed of the capitol, not your dirty bike nonsense.

    Thanks. Too bad about Pentagon and Air Force Memorial, my two personal faves of that list. Such a wasteland of an area.

    So now it will easier to drop family and luggage at the airport, drive home to park, and then CaBi in, a la WashCycle!

    Seriously, good to see progress of any kind with NPS as well.

    As for the Pentagon. With not only the metro station, and the huge employment center, but the biggest bus depot (that is effectively what it is) in the region, it would be a natural for CaBi. But given the attitude of the Pentagon Reservation management to biking, I guess that will be a long time coming.

    The smellshed is often pretty awesome as well.
