Arizona Ave NW Protected Bike Lane Town Hall
Thursday, April 28, 2022, 5:00 PM
DDOT is proposing a new protected bike lane on Arizona Ave NW from Loughboro Rd to MacArthur Blvd as a first key piece of the planned low stress bike network in the Palisades and Spring Valley neighborhoods in Ward 3. At this Town hall, hosted by Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3D, DDOT planners will present the plan, answer questions, and take feedback to improve the plan.
The Arizona Ave protected bike lane is one of the many recommendations of DDOT’s Rock Creek Far West Livability Study (pdf). It would link to planned bikeways on Loughboro Rd for connections east to Nebraska Ave, Mass Ave, and New Mexico Ave. It will also enable a planned new connection to the Capital Crescent Trail and future refurbished Arizona Ave Pedestrian Bridge. For more background on the early concepts, see a previous presentation here.
