Dr. Gridlock reports that work has begun on the improvement of the Route 50/10th Street/Courthouse Road interchange. This project includes building a new trail on the Ft. Myer side of Route 50, and improving the "trail" - which is really just a sidewalk - on the opposite side.
Tales from the Sharrows has kindly put together a drawing of the trails on a map and, from my reading, it looks like he got it right, but who knows? I disagree with him that the Ft. Myer-side trail won't get used. For those currently passing through the Fort, this may become preferred. It doesn't close and you don't have to stop and show a badge. What would make it more usable would be a connection from the south end of 12th to Meade. But you'd have to punch it through private land.
Tales also took a bunch of photos of the current condition. He should keep taking pictures of it from the same spots and go all jdland on it.
