After the Open House, if there is interest, we can take a self-guided tour of two construction projects nearby:

(1) I-66 HOV/Toll Lanes (outside the Capital Beltway); and
(2) Reconstruction of the Arlington Memorial Bridge (crossing the Potomac River between Columbia Island (in D.C.) and the Lincoln Memorial (also in D.C.).
(3) A post-meet dinner stop in Arlington County, Virginia is also under consideration.

I wish. That being said, I'm going to follow this thing so I can learn what the best ways to see the two projects are. I'm going to be down in the area for TRB and I plan to do some roadgeeking on my way home (that takes me on Skyline Drive, but that's beside the point).

If the weather is snowy or icy, there is a fairly high probability that Skyline Drive will be closed (check the Shenandoah National Park Web site before you head that way).

Yeah, I have a backup plan involving US 340 and US 522 in the event of inclement weather. A backup for THAT, too, in case weather is particularly bad.

I'm here. It's huge. I'll hang out by the food trucks or something.

I just thought about this again right this second.  At least this was not on the forefront of my mind unlike Kingston was before I backed out.
