MoveDC plan proposes 70 miles of cycletracks
DC could one day have 70 miles of protected bike lanes, if the latest proposal from DDOT becomes reality.
The proposal comes as part of the latest draft of MoveDC, DDOT's master plan. It's still only a proposal, and has not been approved by the DC Council. But what an exciting proposal it is!
And that's not all, just for bikes. The proposal also includes over 60 miles of new off-street trails, and another 70 miles of new regular bike lanes.
Of course, it's easy to adopt great plans and harder to accomplish them. DDOT is still struggling to implement the M Street cycletrack, after all. But one must start with a plan, and this appears to be an extremely progressive plan.
Tomorrow I'll share the latest recommendations for transit.
