ARLnow Weekend Discussion

It’s Friday and nearly the Fourth of July, which means it’s hot and people are leaving town.

It’s been a busy week for transportation-related stories, between county plans for safety improvements on Military Road and Lorcom Lane and a new pedestrian-bicycle corridor. And officials shared more information about why scooters get dumped on trails and why sidewalk building takes so long.

A development in Rosslyn, meanwhile, announced plans to build a bike esplanade. And for all the complaints in the comment section about “Maryland tags,” there has to be some self-reflection that maybe we mostly ourselves to blame: a new Allstate report ranked Arlington pretty low for safe driving.

Here are the top five most-read posts from the past week:

Feel free to discuss any of the stories above, or any other topic of local interest, in the comments.
