“The district DOT has redesigned 15th Street NW between U Street and Massachusetts Avenue to accommodate two-way bike traffic on a one-way street. Northbound cyclists get a shared lane moving in the same direction as car traffic, and southbound cyclists ride in a parking-protected lane. The treatment has also slimmed down the street, removing a vehicle lane and calming traffic.”
However, I (as well as Borderstan) have noticed that many bikers are actually going the wrong way on the one-way lane.
So how for those who use this lane – how’s it working it out? What do you do when a biker is coming at you in the wrong direction? Is there enough room to pass each other or does somebody have to yield?
