- DDOT presented new information on the South Capitol Street Bridge to the BAC and PAC. The alignment would change to be parallel to the existing bridge. The ovals will stay, but "some sort of bicyclist and pedestrian facilities and connections will be included in the ovals."
- DDOT is planning 16-foot bike/ped pathways on both sides, with horizontal separation of markings or signage to show that one portion is primarily for pedestrians and one is primarily for bicyclists.
- There is not a change of elevation from the walking portion to the biking portion, allowing for flexible space to handle peak traffic of either bike or pedestrian during busy periods, like ballpark events or morning commutes.
- Most importantly, that 16-foot bike/ped pathway will be present around the western oval, with eight feet marked for bicycle use
- The NCPC has released the revised version of the Comprehensive Plan's Visitors & Commemoration Element. NCPC is seeking public comment on this updated element through March 15, 2013. "NCPC will host a public forum on the draft element on Wednesday, February 20 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Come learn about the element, NCPC’s recent Memorial Trends and Practice in Washington, DC report, and provide us your feedback." There isn't anything in the Memorial Trends document about cycling, but the Visitors and Commemoration Element has a section on transportation that does mention bike sharing.
- Tomorrow, WABA is partnering with Dr. Ted Eytan, a full-time promoter of active transportation within Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Total Health, to lead a public meeting on how to make bicycling a part of your everyday life, and how decisions like these lead to a healthier life.
- Another report on the Green Mile meeting with SHA.
- Bicycle Action Day in Richmond. And more here.
