Key Bridge Repairs

Take note of the barges that sit across the first and second arch in the photo.  We will need to prepare for similar situations….

By the end of this week, DDOT will begin staging equipment for the planned repairs to Key Bridge.  It is a 24-month project that will involve barges in the river/arches during the process.  Throughout the repairs, typically one and sometimes two arches will be obstructed.

A DDOT representative gave an update/overview at a meeting last week of the Potomac River Access Coalition.  DDOT is clearly aware of the navigation hazards involved with the project, and appears to be coordinating closely with Harbor Patrol and the U.S. Coast Guard.  It will be incumbent on the rowing community to ensure our unique needs are addressed.  We have POC’s for the project, there will be a public meeting in the next week or two, and apparently there will also be […]

Reminder about Rowing by TBC

A few years ago, we sat down with the Potomac River Safey Committee, TBC’s management and representatives of some of PBC and agreed upon one thing: Don’t complete any speedwork on the DC side of the TBC bend.  In a nutshell, don’t go blazing by their dock.

In the summer we have a lot of novices trying out singles from TBC.  As much as they are told the rules of the river, we have to treat those rowers like the weekend paddleboarders and kayakers: they aren’t remembering traffic rules.  It does not make it okay but to keep ourselves safe, we agreed that we go around that bend with caution.

This is a time to remind since the singles are still out there and the college programs are starting back up.  It isn’t worth the injury to the boats and the rowers.

Many thanks,

Lena
