DDOT Installs New Bike Route Signs on Park Road & Monroe Street, NW
Yesterday I was informed that DDOT has installed new bike route signs along Park Road (between Park Place and Sherman/New Hampshire) and Monroe Street (west of Sherman/New Hampshire). I haven’t checked it out yet, but Newton Place between 14th and 16th streets may also be included. The signs are installed for both eastbound and westbound cyclists. Along the route, the distance signs change and occasionally directional signage is included, which is necessary as Park Road jigs as it crosses Georgia Avenue, and destinations like Howard University or the Georgia Avenue Metro are not located on Park Road.
While I’m a big fan of bike routes and think they are good, I also believe that dedicated bike lanes (and protected bike lanes) are better when possible. I’m hopeful to see DDOT’s current efforts with their Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study result in additional improvements to our transportation network.
