Do you ride a bicycle? Do you live in Columbia Heights or Mt Pleasant? Then you are not alone.
The Washington Area Bicyclist Association thinks your neighborhood has the highest bicycle usage rates in the city, yet completely lacks accommodations for bicyclists, both in terms of on road facilities and bicycle parking.
While the Columbia Heights/Mt Pleasant Transportation Study recommends striping bike lanes on Mt Pleasant Street from Park to Columbia, Columbia Road from 18th to Georgia, Harvard Street from 16th to Georgia, and extending the 14th Street bike lanes south to Park Road, WABA wants more.
WABA recommends extending the 14th Street bike lanes further south to U Street where they will connect to existing lanes south to Thomas Circle, add bike lanes on 11th Street from Park to Florida, on Kenyon and Irving Street from 11th Street east to the Hospital Center, and add bike parking to the streetscape.
Think WABA is right on, or crazy nuts? Then let your voice be heard!
