It would be super amazing if bikers (and runners/walkers) could go down the bluemont trail on a pedestrian bridge that could span the intersection of wilson blvd and george mason. The trail has to pause at the huge four way intersection and that would be an ideal space for a pedestrian bridge, so that individuals didn't have to wait for the light (and so that parents could feel safer about kids crossing the streets there). ...more »
Millennials in Arlington
Driving westbound down route 50, I'm surprised that the bike path doesn't really continue past past Glebe Rd. Route 50 is wide enough to have a bike path that could be longer, perhaps even on both sides of the road.
Washington Boulevard (especially north of route 50) would be an ideal corridor for a dedicated bike lane.
Also, what happened to the plan to extend the bike path beside Washington boulevard south of rt. 50? I thought that they were going to connect Columbia Pike to Crystal City and the Pentagon City Mall? I heard a lot about it three years ago but it has felt like deafening silence since then...
I'd love to embrace "Millennialism" and be car-free, but the inconsistency in transit options in parts of North Arlington is difficult-- there is minimal bus service and a lack of bikeshare stations, even near Marymount University. Adding bikeshare locations along the northern portion of Glebe Road from Lee Highway up to Chain Bridge would be helpful in continuing to connect this area with other parts of the County!
