WABA Alert: Comments Needed on K Street Transitway
WABA is urging concerned cyclists to take a few moments of their time today to help bring better bicycling tomorrow.

The deadline for comments on the K Street Transitway project is October 30th and opposition from area businesses to WABA's preferred option, Alternative 3, is strong. Alternative 3 is the only design that provides any sort of accommodation for cyclists and we strongly believe that to rebuild K Street without facilities for cyclists would be a missed opportunity and would run counter to the city's stated desire to improve conditions for cyclists. While Alternative 3 provides for bike lanes, WABA is urging the DC Department of Transportation to instead construct cycle tracks-bike lanes that are protected by a raised curb. We believe this design will help prevent vehicles from parking in the bike lane and would present a more attractive option for less experienced cyclists. WABA's detailed comments on the project can be found at http://www.waba.org/documents/K_Street_Transitway_Comments.pdf.

We hope that you will take the time to send your comments to the following email address: KStreet.comments@dc.gov

Also, free bike lights from WABA tomorrow night around DC. http://bit.ly/2hNFi8
