Safer C Street: The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) wants to improve safety and connectivity on C Street NE from 22nd Street NE to 14th Street NE, and on North Carolina Avenue NE from 16th Street NE to 14th Street NE. Get an update on the design and weigh in on the project at a public meeting at 6 pm at Rosedale Community Center (1701 Gales Street NE NW).

Getting across the city from Columbia Heights to Brookland is not particularly safe for people who are biking or walking. The District Department of Transportation wants to change that.
In September 2016, DDOT completed the Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study from Columbia Heights to Brookland. The study recommended a variety of improvements throughout the corridor to make it safer and faster for biking, walking, and driving including protected bike lanes on Park Place NW, Warder Street NW, 7th Street NW, and 5th Street NW.
Get the latest info on the proposal and weigh in on the project at the next public meeting at 6 pm at the Raymond Recreation Center (3725 10th St).
Wednesday, June 13
Bikes, art, and tacos: Eat some tasty tacos and see some great art on a ride with the Washington Area Bicyclists Association in Arlington! The ride is about five miles and will begin at 6:30 pm at the plaza at the corner of Oak Street & Wilson in Rosslyn. You can secure your spot for $10, but the ride is free for Capital Bikeshare members and WABA members. Helmets are mandatory.
Safety on the Capital Crescent Trail: A bicyclist, Ned Gaylin, died at the intersection of Capital Crescent Trail and Little Falls Parkway — we need a permanent solution. Head over to a community meeting at 7 pm at Somerset Elementary School (5811 Warwick Place) in Chevy Chase to discuss which temporary improvements have worked and which permanent solutions to choose.
Next Tuesday, June 19
Bike Hack Night: Get an inside look at all the latest bike hacks at Bike Hack Night IV, a show and tell of bicycle-related apps, data visualizations, and gadgets — anything built with code. Doors open at 6:00 pm and the program begins at 6:30 pm at the Development Seed in Blagden Alley (20 Blagden Alley NW).
