DDOT is preparing a proposal for Benning Road and Bridge Multi-Modal Transportation Improvements from Oklahoma Avenue to the Minnesota Avenue and Benning Road Metrorail Stations. This area intersections with both sides of the Anacostia Riverwalk Trails and also represents of the few places that cyclists can cross the Great Wall of Anacostia (DC-295 and the railroad tracks). If you've ever tried to make this crossing on bike it can be harrowing. Traffic goes way too fast on Benning Road, the sidewalks are no more appealing and getting onto the bridge requires crossing a highway on-ramp. So bike improvements are needed. Those who ride - or would like to ride - this route should consider attending.
A cycletrack from the Anacostia to the bridge would be great.
