For anything skipped there is no status update
#9 New York Avenue station MBT - After languishing for four years, trail work began this year from R to Franklin, but the connection from NY Avenue to R won't be finished until Spring.
#10 Connecting to the 14th Street Bridge - Work on the Humpback Bridge began in January 2008 and should be completed this upcoming summer. But there are still no plans to connect the Virginia side underpass to Boundary Drive, so it will only be part of the solution. Phase I of the Long Bridge Park Project is out to bid. Work should start in early 2010 and end in mid-2011. Unfortunately the bridge over the GW Parkway connecting the Mt. Vernon Trail to the park isn't a part of Phase I. The schedule is being updated, so it is impossible to say when this will be done.
#5 Transit Access - Bicycle racks were added to all Cue buses this year and wes of May 2009, Bicycles are allowed on the last three northbound VRE trains, the midday and the last three southbound trains of the day. VRE is limiting bikes to two per train car and says they must be tethered to train seats. The Alexandria City Council voted not to pay to add bike racks to DASH buses. Metro began a study of how to make it's stations and the immediate area around them more conducive to cycling.
#11 Dupont Circle Bike Station - No one official is specifically talking about it, but the arts group looking to make gallery space out of the tunnels is only interested in one half, leaving the other half - or even just part of it - available for a bike station. Just this month, ODMPED announced that
they have finally worked out the legal issues around the lease, and are eager to move ahead with an RFP for the site. So eager, in fact, that they are hoping to release the RFP this month and simultaneously collect community feedback between now and the end of December.
More on that later.
#1 Wilson Bridge - The bike trail opened in early June (yea!). It has some ridiculous rules, users heading to DC have to follow a circuitous route on some questionable trails and National Harbor is somewhat unwelcoming (banning cycling on it's trail and building a fence between National Harbor Road and Clay Drive) but, it is open - and people do use it for recreation and transportation.
#2 Douglass Bridge - The preferred alternative was chosen. Keeping the old bridge won't be possible since the draw bridge would need to be maintained in working order. No dates for the replacement yet.
#3 11th Street Bridges - This one is farther along than the Douglass. The RFP was issued in February and the contract awarded in April. River work started in August and bridge work could start in 2011 with a closure of the existing bridge for a few months. The design portion of the contract has not gone cyclists way, with total space dedicated to cyclists going down from 28 feet to 14 feet, but DDOT is pushing to get that to 20 feet.
#2 Cabin John Trolley - Only the Palisades Neighborhood section mentioned above has made progress.
#3 Shepherd Branch - I asked Gabe Klein about this at a streetcar meeting and he said that CSX told him they want to keep the ROW.
#8 Rhode Island Avenue Trolley Trail - College Park Trail IV, the City's missing link north to Paint Branch Parkway, could begin construction in Spring 2010. It is the most expensive portion because it requires the road to be rebuilt.
#11 Three Notch Trail - Phase V received funding approval from the state last January. Though work on Phases III, IVB and V were to either start or complete in 2009, it doesn't appear that has happened, as the limits are the same as they were last year.
