15th Street Cycletrack Upgrades Beginning Tomorrow, Sept. 6

2010 11 16 - 1403 - Washington DC - 15th St Bikeway from P St

The 15th Street cycletrack will be repaved over the next month, in several phases. The first begins tomorrow. DDOT has recommended 14th and 16th streets as alternate routes; given the heavy construction on 14th Street and lack of bike lane on 16th Street, neither is ideal. You might consider leaving alternate route suggestions here, or taking 11th or 18th streets and making an east-west connection from there. (More suggestions may flow in here.)

Temporary Parking Lane Restrictions on 15th Street NW Start September 6, 2013
Restrictions required to resurface 15th Street Cycletrack

(Washington DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will be temporarily restricting the parking lane on the west side of 15th Street NW, from K Street to Swann Street, to repave the 15th Street Cycletrack. While the cycletrack is being repaved, bicyclists are advised to use alternate routes, such as 14th Street and 16th Street NW.

The temporary parking restrictions are scheduled to begin on or about Friday, September 6, 2013 and continue through Friday, October 11, 2013, weather permitting.

The project is scheduled to be completed in several phases. The first phase—which will involve repairs to curbs, gutters, and pedestrian ramps along the corridor—will take approximately two weeks to complete and affect two-block segments at a time. During this phase, temporary No Parking signs will be posted in advance along the affected segments so that residents have adequate notice to move their cars to another location.

The next phases of the project—which involve resurfacing the 15th Street Cycletrack, installation of pavement markings—will be done in two, larger segments. During these phases, DDOT will also provide advanced notice via temporary No Parking signs.
