Connecticut Ave NW Reversible Lane & Protected Bike Lane Public Meeting
Thursday, April 1, 2021, 7:00 PM
The District Department of Transportation is holding critical public meetings on the future design of Connecticut Avenue in Ward 3. If you support our vision for a more bikeable, walkable and livable Connecticut Avenue with protected bike lanes, this is the time to show up and speak up for that vision.
Last year, DDOT began studying removing the dangerous reversible lanes on Connecticut Ave and exploring other road designs, including protected bike lanes. After extensive pre-pandemic data collection, traffic modeling, and nearly a year without the reversible lanes during the lighter traffic of the pandemic, DDOT has concluded that Connecticut Ave does not need reversible driving lanes to accommodate traffic.
The pivotal decision now — should Connecticut Ave continue serving only people zipping through in cars OR should it be redesigned to safely accommodate people biking while making a more walkable, livable, and community-oriented street?
