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.
