“Dear PoPville,

I saw you post a while back about the status of bike lanes around Hanes Point, so I wanted to share that the project has been completed. As advertised, it’s dedicated one lane of space to pedestrian/cycle lanes going both directions and a buffer (without barriers) to the remaining vehicular lane.

On the whole I’d say it’s a step up from before, though certainly not perfect. Read More


Thanks to Jenna for sending: “As seen at Hains Point this morning. Apparently it crashed around 2am, and drifted about 30 yds into the river before it full sunk. Not sure what happened to the occupant(s).”

DC Fire and EMS reported: “DCsBravest Fireboats assisted @usparkpolicepio & @DCPoliceDept Harbor Branch in removing a vehicle that went into the Washington Channel overnight. The single occupant, an adult male, was rescued at the time of the incident and uninjured.” Read More

Thanks to Ketti for sharing. Unfortunately the link in the poster is not currently active but I did come across this interesting historical tidbit that I never knew:

“Hains Point is named for the US Army Corps of Engineers’ Peter Conover Hains, the engineer who designed the Tidal Basin. Here, the Potomac River, Washington Channel, and Anacostia River all converge.”

Will post again on April 19th when more info on the designs are released.
