Community Conversation on North-South Bike Lanes Scheduled for Thursday, November 12th

November 9, 2020

ANC 1A is hosting a special virtual public information and feedback forum with DDOT representatives regarding the ongoing Crosstown transportation project on Thursday, November 12th. The webinar will focus on the north/south portions of the bike lane project in Park View along Warder Street and Park Place, with future meetings to focus on westward expansion.  

The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 12, beginning at 7 pm. There are three ways to join:

Bicycle lanes were first installed on 5th Street NW/Park Place NW and 7th Street NW/Warder Street NW between 2006 and 2010. However, many in the community have requested protected bike lanes in this portion of the project. DDOT’s Crosstown 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.

In order to balance competing needs for public space and to address streetscape and safety issues, ANC1A has requested DDOT consider making Park Road a one-way street to allow for parking on both sides of the street and to consider strategic curb bulb outs for street trees and to improve crosswalk safety.
