Arlington transportation projects, including trail projects, typically progress at less than a snail's pace, so the concept of an Arlington "shovel-ready" project is absurd.

All four projects listed at the top of this message have supposedly had construction funding for roughly the past decade, but approvals have been slow in coming, construction costs have risen, and some prior funding has been reallocated.

In defending his staff, the Arlington County Manager says, "we don't do easy".

Bottom line: don't hold your breath for any of these trail projects.

"Phase I" of the Washington Blvd trail would merely widen an existing sidewalk for one or two blocks.

The funding for Columbia Pike would design a streetcar line with tracks running in the curb lanes.
