Back in June we discussed whether or not 15th Street should become a two way street. Borderstan has found out what the reconfiguration will look like:

1. 15th Street NW will remain one-way going north, with three lanes of auto traffic.
2. Two bicycle lanes will be added to 15th Street NW.
3. The northbound bicycle lane will be on the east side of 15th, between parked cars and car traffic—just like many of the bicycle lanes we currently see in the city.
4. However, the southbound bicycle lane will be next to the west curb of 15th Street. Bicyclists will ride between the sidewalk and parked cars, protecting them from northbound traffic.

Sound good?
