New Jersey East of Tingey, Looking East-Southeast (see more)

From a press release just sent to me:
"Beginning on Apr. 12, 2012 gates at the east and west end of the waterfront promenade (Riverwalk) at the Washington Navy Yard (WNY), will open for unlimited public access.
"The gates at both ends of the WNY Riverwalk will remain open for public access from dusk to dawn and will be open as a thoroughfare to facilitate access to the WNY and neighboring areas after sunset. There will be no loitering allowed between the hours of sunset and sunrise and the Riverwalk may close, without notice, to support WNY operations. [...]
"The Display Ship Barry, located along the WNY Riverwalk, will be open to the public with access directly from the Riverwalk during normal operating hours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday."
The release also quotes Naval Support Activity Washington commanding officer Cmdr. David Varner as saying that this is "supporting the community's desire to have a walkable riverfront."
The Navy Yard's portion of the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail runs from just next to the 11th Street Bridges down to the Yards Park.
(Note that April 12 is also the day of the Nats' home opener.)
UPDATE: For those who haven't been following along, I should note that it was last year that the Navy Yard first opened their promenade to limited public access, first just from 8 am to 5 pm Monday-Friday, then starting at 5:30 am, then to seven days a week until "official sunset."

This is huge for early morning runners and PM bike commuters like me.

Related: The Anacostia River Walk Trail continues to improve, the multi-use bridge crossing the tracks over by the Sousa bridge is just about complete, they've put down asphalt on the ramps. I actually already ran across it the other day.

So great to see this neighborhood growing up.

Are they lifting the dog restriction too?

(BTW, if you're trying to register as a new commenter, the registration app is broken right now. Sorry--hope it'll be fixed soon. Hosting company rolled in some server patches last night, and broke all manner of stuff. The Photo Archive browser is down for the count right now, too. Sigh.)

(Aaaaaaaand, they appear to be fixed now)

This is good news, it always seemed to be closed off at random times when I would try to run there.


JD says: (4/6/12 10:16 AM)
As the press release says, they reserve the right to still close it when necessary for "operations."


MJM says: (4/6/12 1:57 PM)
Does the press release say that bikes are now allowed? Or is that an assumption?


JD says: (4/6/12 2:05 PM)
No, doesn't say anything about bikes one way or the other. I'll be interested to see if they post new signs.

I think they're all going to have to do something about bike signage--because even if you can now bike on the Navy Yard part, you're not supposed to be able to bike on the Yards Park boardwalk either. Back in the design days of the Yards Park, they showed that people are supposed to be able to make a right immediately after the Navy Yard promenade, go up to Tingey, bike to the new 2nd Street that will eventually exist, then come back down to the bridge to Teague.


MJM says: (4/6/12 2:59 PM)
That map as you know has been out there for a long time with it Gerrymandering route but some renderings of the trail and then bicyclists have somehow come to think that its a biking trail all the way from Teague to the 11th St Bridge
