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:
- JUST IN: Oz Restaurant in Clarendon to Close
- Four Arrested at Bob and Edith’s on Columbia Pike
- UPDATED: Woman Killed by Falling Tree Limb Along Walter Reed Drive
- Arlingtonian Buzzes into Jeopardy! Next Month
- Progressive Voice: Teardowns and McMansions — Can We Do More Than Just Talk About It?
