Re: bridge width
Wouldn't forward looking planning suggest building a wider than necessary bridge now so as to accomate road widening in the future without having to rebuild the bridge?

If there's no plan to widen the road within the bridge's lifetime then overbuilding is just a waste of money. Every once in a while it might save some money on a rebuild, but not overall.

FABB points out that the measurements for the bridge are not accurate. Surprise! One of only three glaring errors in the story.

Does anyone know any details on that 10-foot pathway near the Lorton landfill? A safe connection between the Lorton Station area and the VA-123 sidepath would be nice. Given the way folks usually drive on Lorton Road, I am too leery to ride it around those blind curves, especially uphill.
