prototype luminous body for Westmoreland pedestrian overpass

The frequently used, scenic Westmoreland pedestrian overpass crosses Rt. 50/Arlington Blvd next to the Ft. Myer Heights Park and the important Westmoreland Terrace Condominiums.  The center light on the overpass is currently broken.  That broken light provides a great opportunity to recognize Rosslyn beyond Lynn St. and to highlight Rosslyn as the welcoming port to all of Arlington County.  Replace the broken light with a prototype luminous body!

Luminous bodies are objects of wonder particularly appropriate for Rosslyn.  A symmetric, linear arrangement of luminous bodies might tend to regularize them.  The Ode Street Tribune endorses a more asymmetric, surprising, and geographically inclusive placement of Rosslyn's luminous bodies.
