DCist covers DDOT’s proposal to convert 15th Street to two-way operation which I covered when it was first announced in January. DDOT presented it to the Council yesterday.

two-way streets are better, and according to WTOP, Councilmembers Jack Evans (who we already know is good on traffic issues) and Muriel Bowser (who believes Rock Creek park’s primary purpose is to speed Ward 4 drivers’ commutes) both expressed support for additional one-way to two-way conversions.

WTOP’s story, though, would have been a lot more impartial without an inflammatory headline like “Controversial traffic plan could slow your commute.” Sigh.
