Pedestrian Crosswalk @ Lincoln Memorial

What do you think of the new crosswalks around the Lincoln Memorial? Specifically this one that crosses 23rd Street NW and its twin on Henry Bacon Drive NW.

While I have to say they offer great pedestrian access to Daniel Chester French’s wonderful sculpture of the 16th President, they don’t look friendly to Virginia-bound traffic.

Every time I’ve biked or ran around the monument, there is a long backup of traffic to Constitution Avenue, especially on Henry Bacon Drive NW.

Drivers, what’s your feeling? Is your wait worth a safe and easy tourist experience.
