DC Protected Bike Lane Pop Up Event Schedule for Kenyon Street on Friday

As part of DDOT’s efforts to establish protected bike lanes in Park View, they have scheduled a Bike Lane Pop Up Event for the 400 block of Kenyon Street on Friday, September 21st. Below are the details and this is definitely worth checking out.

Meeting Info

On Friday, September 21st, 2018 from 7-9 AM and 4-7PM, the project team will be available to speak to the public about a full-scale model of the protected bike lane along the 400 block of Kenyon Street NW located between Park Place NW and Warder Street NW. The temporary bike lane will be along Kenyon Street NW from September 19 -September 22, 2018 as part of the Crosstown Protected Bike Lanes Project. 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.  www.dccycletrack.com/crosstown for more information on the project.

Project Background

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. Bicycle lanes were installed on 5th Street NW/Park Place NW and 7th Street NW/Warder Street NW between 2006 and 2010. However, the community has requested protected bike lanes in this portion of the project. This project provides an opportunity to reassess the existing street design of Park Place NW, Warder Street NW, 7th Street NW, and 5th Street NW to examine design options for protected bicycle lanes.

Crosstown is one of the three (3) locations DDOT is looking to implement protected bike lanes as part of the Protected Bike Lanes Project to increase safety and mobility.

    I think I’ll wait for the Park Place pop-up event. They can do whatever they want on Kenyon.
