Thanks for this post! You are spot on that this is mainly just sharrows, with almost no effort to actually reduce car speeds, reduce car volumes, or prioritize cycling.

I went by there last Friday, and the diverter, the only real piece of bike boulevard infrastructure, was not built yet.

Also, the section of 41st St, north of Reno is classified as an arterial, with high vehicle volumes (7,400 / day), which are almost 5 times as many vehicles as are recommended for a bike boulevard (<1,500 vehicles/day).

Bike boulevards could be a great tool for linking DC together with high quality bicycle infrastructure, but this is certainly not a bike boulevard.
