    Bike & running path proposed for new DC bridge

    The paths on the Wilson Bridge have been a boon to athletics in Alexandria & Prince George’s County:

    From Waba–

    “The Long Bridge Project, which will replace an aging rail connection between DC and Crystal City, includes a brand new bike-pedestrian bridge over the Potomac River. As they finalize plans and funding sources D.C. government officials need to hear from you: the bike-pedestrian crossing must remain in the plan.

    The Long Bridge has the potential to be the best crossing of the Potomac River for people who ride. It will also support the transportation and environmental goals of DC, Arlington and Alexandria. The entire project will only be a success if the bike-pedestrian crossing is included.

    Northern Virginia, particularly Crystal City, is expecting significant growth in the near future. Wise transportation investments like the bicycle and pedestrian bridge associated with Long Bridge, will ensure that personal mobility can be prioritized without the negative impacts of increased traffic congestion or air pollution.

    In January 2018, over 1600 people submitted messages in support of the bike-pedestrian crossing in the latest round of public comments. There is resounding support for this element of the project! The Draft Environmental Impact Study (DEIS) was published in September 2019.

    Project managers are accepting public comment until October 28, 2019.”
