(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is developing innovative new bike infrastructure in the greater downtown area, to accommodate increased bicycling in the city, and to prepare for the expansion of the bikesharing program. To see the latest plans, DDOT and the Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) invite the public to attend a meeting on Thursday, March 18, at the Heritage Center of the United States Navy Memorial.
Because of the high demand for curb space, including a large number of buses and delivery trucks, DDOT has looked to other cities such as New York and Montreal for designs which both protect cyclists and accommodate other downtown activity. Based on what we found, DDOT has developed creative proposals for new bike lanes on the following streets:
- Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
- I Street, NW
- L Street, NW
- 15th Street, NW
- 9th Street, NW
More detailed plans for each street will be discussed at the meeting.
