On the one hand, not turning some of the wildly overbuilt road space into bicycle/multimodal space is horribly stupid and backwards, and on the other, it won't be worse than it is now, so in the world of bikes I guess it's not as bad a loss as usual.

Maybe they'll consider accommodating cyclists when they re-rebuild it in 75 years.

One of my scariest bike moments occurred on that bridge. Was trying to pass a wide line of spread-out tourists close to the road, had a clothing malfunction, and started to fall into the travel lane. Wish I could be optimistic that they will not take the sidewalk during construction.

Memorial bridge can go on a road diet, a bike lane would be helpful to avoid tourists as others have pointed out, and for ebike riders who need a legal way to cross at least one of the Potomac bridges legally and safely. NPS needs to revisit their casual dismissal when WABA last asked for a bike lane.

NPS proves again that it is terrible at working int he urban environment. All land and facilities controlled by NPS that is not of obvious national significance (basically everything except the Mall, monuments, and capitol grounds) should be given back to the government of DC, where it can be properly managed and maintained in a way that respects the urban context.

uptowner is right. the nps has stood and continues to stand in the way of sanity, and transportation and aesthetic progress. what a disaster.

Having returned from a tour of the Big 5 Utah National Parks over spring break, I can report that they are not great when it comes to the rural environments either. If you want to drive somewhere in the parks, you are a winner. Everyone else is on their own
