    Last Commute on Oak St. Bridge

    Damn "HOT Lane" construction on I495 in Northern VA. I had a sweet route from Annandale to Tysons Corner that took me across the Oak St. Bridge overpass over I495. 2 lanes, not too much local or cut-through traffic.

    They're tearing it down for HOT Lane work starting May 10th. They've had the detour signs up for a week or so now, but it's finally going to be shut down.

    Now I have to follow the W&OD down to Sandburg and then come in that way. It's only about .3 miles longer, but it's the principle

    New bridge supposed to be open in 2010. We'll see.

    How dare they mess with your bike route!!!! Where I live they are almost done with making a 2 lane state road into a 4 lane road with bike paths on the shoulder. Its supposed to be done this fall. I cant wait!!! When it was a 2 lane (with no shoulder) I wouldn't ride it, toooo many log & dump trucks for my liking. Soon I wont have to drive 4 miles and park at the post office to ride, I'll be able to start off from home.
