The section of the "trail" near the Pentagon (for one) is embarrassing and dangerous. Narrow sidewalk right of against highway traffic with no buffer. :(

Are you talking about the part along Washington Blvd? That could be better for sure.

I did recently find out why they left that stub of an old access ramp just north of the Pentagon (here). It's because the storm drain access was that far in, and moving that would be prohibitively expensive. So, they left a little bit of road to move storm water. I would have preferred something greener.

I'm fairly well acquainted with a person on the board of the 911 trail project, so happy to relay suggestions for improving, either near the Pentagon or elsewhere. -Jeff

The southern portion of that trail by Boundary Channel Dr is fine, although I still prefer the street. The only big thing there is the need to pave the section of BCD heading south right under 395.

Yes, I'm talking about the stretch along 27 (Washington Blvd).

I'm hoping most of this terrible spot is fixed by the bridge construction: https://www.google.com/maps/@38.8756686,-77.0573593,3a,75y,30.49h,71.18t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sefoPKp1QlFIPA6FTFfuWDw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

But that still leaves this:

Plus the whole stretch is a sub-standard width, and the part that gets you to the 9-11 memorial has a sudden 90 degree turn into two sets of closely-spaced bollards several of which have CHAINS between them (enjoy coming across that at night in the rain).
