Washington Area Bicycle Association (WABA)'s proposed bike network for the Bloomingdale area -- 2020 throught 2040


This is not new news.  I just ran across this at the website of the Washington Area Bicycle Association (WABA).
  
Note that these maps are from WABA and not from DDOT.

I have no idea what DDOT thinks of this proposed bicycle network.

Perhaps the bicycle network devotees can comment…

See these proposed WABA protected line projects.  I have highlighted the Bloomingdale area.

From the WABA website: https://waba.org/

"WABA is calling for 20 miles of new or upgraded protected bike lanes installed by the end of 2020. [more]

This map shows existing protected bike lanes, paved trails and paths, and proposed protected bike lane projects. Together the existing and future infrastructure creates a connected, protected and equitable bicycle network

Note: the trails and paths illustrated not a comprehensive inventory of all existing trail facilities.

I looked at the WABA maps for three time periods: 2020, 2021-2025 and 2040. I included snips of the maps of the Bloomingdale area.  

1) 20x2020 – connected, protected and equitable bike network – including 5th St NW and Lincoln Road NE




2) 2021-2025 protected bike lane projects – including Florida Ave NE & 1st St NE in NoMa


3) 2040 on-street bike network vision – including 4th St NW, Rhode Island Avenue and Florida Avenue  


FYI.

  1. Wonderful, I eagerly await these improvements to make our neighborhood streets safer, more equitable, and more sustainable. I have also financially contributed to WABA and encourage others to do the same.
