The ANC never received a formal response to these request and in revisiting these requests, the ANC 2B Transportation and Public Infrastructure Committee found that these action items still require attention from DDOT. In July, we sent DDOT another letter reiterating our requests to better maintain bicycle lanes in our neighborhood and to paint markings on sidewalks in the downtown business district clearly indicating that bikes are not allowed.
These are both pedestrian and bicycle safety initiatives that are designed to reduce the incidence of bikes and walkers sharing the same space. The letter reads, in part:
The ANC 2B Transportation and Public Infrastructure Committee is working on solutions
to these and other ongoing issues, but it needs support and commitment from DDOT in
order to move forward or show any tangible progress to the ANC’s resident constituents.
The committee is happy to assist in working on solutions that will bring positive benefits
throughout the District of Columbia. In particular, we are willing to advise on
international standard signage that will provide clear messages to all mode users of the
ANC’s transportation infrastructure, be it pedestrians, cyclists, or motorists
