A group of residents who live along Maryland Ave NE are gathering signatures for a Thank You letter to Mayor Muriel Bowser for her efforts to move forward a plan that will add bike lanes to the street all the way from near the Capitol to H Street / Starburst intersection. The Maryland Ave Safety Project will also narrow the road from four lanes to two lanes, add left turn lanes, and improve intersections to make them safer for pedestrians. Anyone who’s walked or driven along Maryland Ave NE probably knows how fast traffic currently travels along the street — this plan should slow traffic and dramatically improve safety.
The changes could be implemented as early as next spring. To learn more and help keep the project moving forward, sign on here.”
