Update 12/2017: GGWash delivered this petition to ANC 2B to help push this conversation forward at the neighborhood and agency level. We will continue to update supporters as things progress.
DC bike planners are considering a two-way protected bikeway on 17th Street NW in the Dupont Circle neighborhood and farther south. Let's make it happen!
Between Massachusetts Avenue and New Hampshire Avenue, 17th Street today is a one-way street southbound with two driving lanes, one painted bike lane, and a parking lane on each side. The two driving lanes are far too much capacity for this lightly-used neighborhood road. DDOT is considering adding a two-way bike lane to better use the space - you can read more here.
We can hope some group doesn't come out of the woodwork to fight this, but they could. It's possible the design will affect a couple of parking spaces in some way, or business delivery areas. But these issues can be worked out, especially if there is strong support for the project to keep the momentum going.
Weigh in early to show DDOT our enthusiasm for this.
