Update on the Irving/Kenyon Crosstown Protect Bike Lane Project

Milling and paving work on Kenyon Street, looking west from Irving Street intersection.

For people who may not be out and about due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Stay-at-Home Order currently in place, you may not be aware of the progress that DDOT is making on the Crosstown Protected Bike Lane project that will connect Brookland and Park View along Irving Street to the north of the Washington Hospital Center.

Those who live near Wangari Gardens or have traveled past the hospitals recently will have noticed that Irving and Kenyon streets east of Park Place have seen a lot of activity with crews milling and paving the streets. This work was in preparation for the crosstown protected bike lanes and appears to be nearly completed.

Due to this progress, DDOT reports that the project to construct the protected bike lanes is on schedule to begin this week. The section where implementation will occur is from Michigan Avenue on the east to Warder Street on the west.

I am also including images below on the Kenyon Street sections as they are the areas neighbors in Park View will be most interested in.

    I so wish they would continue the bike lane along Kenyon all the way to 14th St. it’s would (hopefully) calm traffic, especially between Warder and Georgia, and help to complete the crosstown cycling grid.

      I’m SO RELIEVED that they aren’t continuing the bike lane down Kenyon St. It would devastate the already problematic parking situation. Not everyone can go carless. I need my car for work.
