Re: Notification for the Installation of Contraflow Bike Lanes on 1600 block of Argonne Pl NW and 1700 block of Lanier Pl NW
Dear Commissioner Irani,
Pursuant to the “Administrative Procedure Amendment Act of 2000” D.C. LAW 13-249 (48 DCR 3491 April 20, 2001), the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is required to give a written notice of our intent to install contraflow bike lanes and modify parking on the 1600 block of Argonne Pl NW and 1700 block of Lanier Pl NW within ANC 1C. This letter is being forwarded to you for the purpose of notification and solicitation of comments on our intent to implement the following in your jurisdiction.
DDOT proposes to:
The existing conditions of these blocks is a single 16’ one way travel lane with 7’ parking zones on both sides of the street. The proposed condition is to install a 5’ contraflow bike lane in the opposite direction, a 1’ double yellow centerline, install shared lane markings (sharrows) in the 10’ vehicular lane, while retaining 7’ parking lanes on both sides of the street.
This project is an important step in expanding the bike lane network, now also used by scooters and other personal mobility devices. This facility will connect to existing bike lanes on Adams Mill and Harvard, and create an alternate route to Columbia Road for some travelers.
We anticipate the following benefits:
All comments on this subject matter must be filed in writing, no later than August 31st, 2020, fifty (50) business days after the date of this notice, with the District Department of Transportation Planning and Sustainability Division, 250 M Street, SE, 5th Floor, Washington, DC, 20003 or via email at email@example.com.
