Petition: Don’t delay protected bike lanes in Petworth and Parkview!
Please support residents of Parkview and Petworth in demanding that The District Department of Transportation complete the North-South leg of the Crosstown Protected Bike Lanes Project!
While the east-west leg has been going swimmingly, (see map above), DDOT has pushed back the development of the North-South segment, which will upgrade existing painted bicycle lanes to fully protected lanes between New Hampshire Avenue and Kenyon Street NW. This delay is unacceptable.
Residents of Parkview and Petworth need safe and easy options to bike and scoot to locations in Brookland and Columbia Heights! Please join us in telling DDOT that there is no time to delay on this project. Parents and kids will need safe, protected routes to school again soon. Local merchants will need the customers and business that easy bicycle access can bring. The temporary unprotected lanes in place now are dangerous to commuters and do nothing to calm traffic or restrict speeding in the area. Please sign the petition now and support the timely completion of this awesome project!
