Draw an SVG path on/off quickly to animate segment along path

I am trying to figure out a method to create the illusion that a tiny segment of a line is traveling along the path it's on. In my codepen, I thought the right place to start was to draw the path on, then draw it off as shown first. What I imagine is there is a way to do this in rapid succession so as it is drawing each new part of the path, it is also undoing the portion behind it (desired result shown next to animation). Thanks for your help!

I'm not quite sure I understand the desired result, but is this what you meant?

@PointC That is indeed what I was looking to do. I'm not sure I totally get why it works, but it works! Thank you :)
