New Experimental Design for 16th and U Bike Lanes

The intersection of 16th ST, U ST, and New Hampshire Ave is a challenge to navigate safely by bike, so DDOT has designed an innovative treatment involving new bike lanes, bicycle signals, and a "bike box." During this experiment, bicyclists will be able to travel legally in both directions on NH Ave through the intersection.

The diagram above depicts the experimental design for the intersection. Click onto the picture to get a close up look at the proposed changes.
