DDOT to Host Crosstown Protected Bike Lanes Pop-Up Event
(Washington, D.C.) — The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will install a temporary installation of the Crosstown Protected Bike Lane along Kenyon Street NW from September 19-21, 2018.
The goal of the temporary installation is to demonstrate how the proposed bike lanes will function and to provide the public with an opportunity to speak with the project team about the Crosstown Protected Bicycle Lane Project.
The project team will be available to speak to the public with a full-scale model of the protected bike lane on September 21 from 7:00 AM - 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM at 400 Kenyon Street NW between Park Place NW and Warder Street NW.
The Crosstown Protected Bicycle Lane designs along Irving Street NE/NW and the 400 block of Kenyon Street NW is Project Recommendation B.1 from the September 2016 Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study. In addition to the protected bicycle lane recommendations, the Crosstown Study recommended a variety of multimodal improvements throughout the corridor to enhance operations for motorists, transit, cyclists, and pedestrians. The study identified safe east and westbound biking connectivity as a priority to close a major gap in the existing bicycle network between Columbia Heights and Brookland.
Crosstown is one of the three locations where DDOT is considering implementing protected bike lanes as part of the Protected Bike Lanes Project to increase safety and mobility.
