The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host a public meeting for the Eastern Downtown Protected Bike Lanes Study. The purpose of this meeting is to present draft alternative designs and the no-build option with the results of a traffic analysis for each. The meeting will have both an open house, with an opportunity to learn about and discuss the project, and a presentation followed by an opportunity for public testimony.

DDOT has been conducting a data-driven study to identify an alternative for a protected bicycle lane in the eastern portion of downtown Washington, DC. The study area is bounded by Florida and Constitution Avenue in the north and south and 4th to 9th Streets NW to the east and west. The project would connect more areas of the District by bike and continue to build a network of quality bicycle facilities. moveDC, the District’s multimodal long-range transportation plan, identified the study as a priority in the 2-year action plan.

The study team has met with area stakeholders, and gathered feedback from the October public meeting and the project website to gain a better understanding of transportation and community impacts as a part of the alternative refinement phase. This meeting will present the “no-build” and four alternatives for further comment and refinement.
