DonRocks Posted July 15, 2006 Share Posted July 15, 2006 You may have noticed a new sign for Wendy's near the N. Lincoln Street overpass of I-66 eastbound, just before Exit 72, Spout Run Parkway. If the mere existence of this sign wasn't bad enough, once you've already committed to the exit ramp, there's a second sign concealed by a tree, basically saying "tee hee hee - it's 2.0 miles from here." Worse, it doesn't tell you which way you're supposed to turn! If you take a right, you'll be thrust into Rosslyn with no Wendy's to be found. So where is it? Incredibly, the sign is apparently for that nasty, decrepit Wendy's near the intersection of Lee Highway and George Mason Drive. You have to take a left onto Lee Highway, then fight two miles of traffic running opposite to the way you were coming from on I-66. On the way, you pass Pasha Café, Arrowine, Lebanese Taverna Market, Crisp and Juicy, Café Parisien Express, Heidelberg Bakery, and maybe a couple others I'm not thinking of, not to mention The Italian Store which is virtually at the bottom of the exit ramp in Lyon Village shopping center. To add insult to injury, there is no hint of any reentry onto I-66 eastbound from that Wendy's. You either need to continue down to Sycamore Street, or head back up to Glebe Road. Any way you slice this up, you're looking at a potential thirty-minute detour just to fight your way to some seriously disgusting food. Why did Wendy's get to have this billboard posted on I-66? Do they have some sort of contract with FHA? VDOT? Cheers, Rocks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
