DC has published the Sustainable DC Second Year Progress Report which highlights key projects and initiatives and summarizes basic progress on all the actions in the Sustainable DC Plan. Most of the updates for cycling, under the transportation category, have been previously reported. They include
With new pedestrian, bike, and transit infrastructure being built, the District’s already high walking and biking rates are increasing, and our transit ridership remains second only to New York City. The District Department of Transportation released its ambitious MoveDC plan and announced its commitment to Vision Zero, a plan to eliminate traffic fatalities. Ongoing partnerships with the Washington Area Bicycle Association and Black Women Bike are further helping to keep us all safe.
- 3 new devices to count passing bicyclists were installed to provide new data, and a performance parking pilot in Chinatown will use data to match parking costs with demand.
- The District Department of Transportation has installed a record 9 miles of new bike lanes, including the beautiful Rhode Island Avenue Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge, and protected cycle tracks on 1st Street NE and M Street NW.
- 10 new Capital Bikeshare stations were installed and a record of 17,286 users in one day was set during the Cherry Blossom Festival. [WC: later the report claims this is 3/4 of the way to their goal of expanding the program by 200 stations, but I would count that if they had added a total of 150, and I don't think they have]
- A 15% increase in biking [WC: not sure what this is measured against]
- The District Department of Transportation started construction on four more miles of the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, which will provide a link for almost 70 miles of trails providing greater access to nature in the District.
