This weekend, DDOT will celebrate the opening of the local 11th Street bridge by closing it to cars. Come out, and bring your bike! Enough people on two wheels might convince DDOT and the mayor’s office that D.C. could pull off a massively successful ciclavia-style Open Streets event.
The bridge is the largest project in the District Department of Transportation’s history. In addition to closing it to motor traffic, DDOT and the Anacostia Watershed Initiative have also lined up a number of food trucks, local entertainment, and activities for kids.
The celebration is from 12-3 p.m. on the 11th Street bridge. For more details and a full schedule of events, see this page.
