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

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.

    It would be great to incorporate curb bulb outs for more street trees on Warder Street. Many sections of that road do not have any grass or tree space in between the road and sidewalk so would be a much needed addition of green space to our neighborhood. Do you think that could be considered as part of this project or any upcoming initiative?

    • Kent Says:

      Tree bulb outs on Warder are included in the draft concept plan. Part of the discussion would need to be if they are in the right place to minimize impact while achieving goal.

    Drats, the AlertDC email this morning about a crash at Park Pl and Irving reminded me of this event. Missed it!

    Please tell me, are we relly going to have to suffer a lane of parked cars on the East side of Park Pl and rename the neighborhood “Parkedcars View” in order to narrow the travel lanes and get protected cycle tracks?
