Arlington County got a $210,000 federal grant to study bike routes on Army-Navy Drive and South Joyce Street. The study will take 8-9 months.
County engineers currently envision a two-way bike lane on Army Navy Drive, made possible by narrowing the road’s comfortably wide lanes and shifting the median. South Joyce Street will likely only get a single bike lane, since its configuration is set by huge concrete structures that hold up the highways that run over it.
The South Joyce Street route will connect to Columbia Pike and the Washington Blvd path.
The map shows this as phase II and phase I as a trail to connect Boundary Channel Drive to the MVT using a planned NPS trail and passing under the new Humpback Bridge.
The Park Service trail will likely have to wait on the completion of the Humpback Bridge project.
Another proposed route would be on-street and would go up Old Jefferson Davis Highway, past the future Long Bridge Park, and around the Pentagon on Boundary Channel Drive. It
will require the cooperation of military officials, who may or may not want bicyclists pedaling up and down the Pentagon reservation due to security concerns.
I hope that's ARlnow's take and not the Pentagons. Because it's pretty ridiculous.
