Dr. Gridlock discusses Eisenhower Connector closure

As we noted back in June, VDOT planned to close the Eisenhower bike connection at Clermont Drive in early July. The WashCycle pointed out that Dr. Gridlock recently discussed some of the frustrations being encountered by cyclists who use the connector.

There are very few alternatives for cyclists in this area. Using Van Dorn St involves a long detour for cyclists riding north-south near Route 1 who use the connector to avoid Telegraph or Route 1. There are very few good Beltway crossings for bicyclists in this area and it's unacceptable that VDOT isn't doing more to provide temporary alternatives for those who use the Eisenhower connection. To complain, write to Bryan Johnson of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge project.
