OhBootsy sends us the letter above over the weekend:
“MAJOR CHANGES COMING TO 21ST ST NW?
Found this on my porch; losing 120 parking spaces on 21st St NW. Is this for real?”
DC Cycle Track’s website says:
“The purpose of this project is to identify a specific route for north- and south-running protected bicycle lanes between Dupont Circle, the western side of Downtown, and the National Mall that provides a safe environment for people biking of all ages and abilities on either 20 , 21 , or 22 Street NW.
For the purposes of project planning, corridors defining the project area include north-south streets of 20 Street, 21 Street, and 22 Street NW between Florida Avenue NW and Constitution Avenue NW. The 1.5-mile project spans the Dupont Circle, West End, Downtown, and Foggy Bottom neighborhoods, with the National Mall at the southern end.
Several east-west bike facilities currently traverse the areas in and around Downtown. However, there is a large north-south gap in the bicycle network between Dupont Circle and the National Mall.”
