Oh, ducky.  My morning walk to the metro station takes me over about 10 of those things.

behind 950 N. Glebe Rd. in Ballston

In 1959 my dad stepped on a manhole cover, flipped it, fell in and broke his leg a couple of blocks west of the 2300 block of N. Glebe, where we lived at the time.  I was three years old.

/ah memories

Bar grates are all over NOVA. So are service workers who park their work vehicles anywhere they will fit.
Vent shaft and transformer vaults are covered for pedestrain use, not vehicular.
Look at the photo again. See how the bar grate panels are distorted?

I'd almost guarantee a vehicle of some sort has been on it.
Bar grates for withstanding vehicular loads are almost always at least 3" thick. Not the 1-1.5" you see in pedestrian areas.

This will happen again.

I used to live right near there.  I was always afraid to walk on those things.  Even if I didn't have a paralytic fear of heights I still wouldn't.  They just look like an excuse for Murphy's Law to strike.
