Bike Lanes Come to 15th Street

After much public comment and with no clear winner among the four options offered by DDOT, a fifth hybrid alternative has been designed and is being installed on 15th Street. This alternative includes both north and southbound bike lanes. Vehicle traffic will continue to have three northbound lanes. You can visit the DDOT website to read about and view this design by pasting the following address into your browser: ddot.dc.gov/ddot/frames.asp?doc=/ddot/lib/ddot/information/studies/15th_street/15thstnw_alternative_draft.pdf

DDOT will start the installation of a protected south-bound bicycle lane on 15th St NW between Mass Ave NW and U Street NW between Monday, Oct. 26, and Monday, Nov. 2, weather permitting.

Work is expected to last approximately 5 days. The contractor will work during the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. During the work, parking onn the west side will be restricted and will be released as work on the section is completed.
