DDOT Reviewing Potential Bikeshare Station for Central Park View

DDOT continues to review locations to expand their Capital Bikeshare program to meet growing community demands for the service. They have identified a new location that looks promising — the northeast corner of Morton Street and Georgia Avenue. Based on DDOT’s preliminary review, there are no parking or traffic impacts to installing a station at this location because it is not in the roadway. The sidewalk is 12 feet wide, so with the bikeshare station installed there would be a six foot pedestrian travel lane, which meets the standards in the Americans with Disabilities Act.

I know that a location in central Park View has been something that many have wanted for years, so the location helps meet that demand as well. The station would be placed next to “Adventure Dental” on the Morton Street side. The following photos provide a better idea of where the station could go.

    Kent, could we please get a crosswalk at Park and Holmead Rds? Thanks!

    Kent, do you know whether Capital Bikeshare has ever considered a location at Triangle Park (which is the wedge of green area between Hobart, 5th Street, and Harvard, on the other side of the street of the reservoir)? It would be a great location for one — right now the park serves no purpose.
