DDOT Continues to Tweak Crosswalk Median

November 17, 2014

DDOT continued to improve the new crosswalk median at Georgia Avenue and Newton Place over the weekend. As you can see from the photos below, they painted the yellow center lane strips as well as painted the north facing curb yellow to alert southbound drivers of the lane shift.

We’ll see if any other changes are made in the near future, but it seems clear that the median is here to stay — or at least until streetcars or Bus Rapid Transit become part of the equation (if at all).

I would also like to see the south facing curb at New Hampshire Avenue and Monroe Street/Park Road painted yellow as well. Its been brought to my attention that many drivers are still hitting that curb as well.
