One of the actions called for in the 2-year moveDC Action plan was a study of "long-term investments needed to serve and connect the growing activity centers of Adams Morgan/Mount Pleasant, Columbia Heights, the Washington Hospital Center/McMillan Sand Filtration Site, and Brookland" which, among other things, would address the goals of expanding and upgrading the network of shared use paths AND improving and expanding for the bike network. Well, that study is kicking off early next month.
DDOT will host a public workshop to kick off the Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study to provide an overview of the project, present existing conditions and data, share key issues, and gather community feedback.
DDOT is undertaking the Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study to identify improvements along the east-west connections along Wards 1 and 5, address safety concerns, optimize mobility and operations, and improve efficiency for all modes along the corridor. DDOT will work with members of the community and key stakeholders to evaluate and develop a range of physical and operational improvements.
February 2nd, 6-8pm at O'Connor Auditorium on the Campus of Trinity University. The study would be completed early next year, but the 30 foot wide East-West Bicycle Gentrification-way would be built much later.
A crosstown bikeway along this route would connect the 15th Street cycletrack to the Metropolitan Branch Trail (as well as a lot of north-south bike lanes).
