Transportation Study page
Please join the Bicycle Advisory Council's Facilities Committee (BAC-FAC) on a ride or 'rolling meeting', October 27, 2012. We will explore the M and I (Eye) Streets SE / SW corridor on beginning at 1pm at Waterfront Metrorail station, near 4th and M Streets SW. 

The purpose of this ride is to review the current conditions and develop options for bicycle and pedestrian consideration in this area as suggested by the District Department of Transportation September meeting regarding the M Street SE-SW Transportation Study. BAC-FAC would like your thoughts on what bicycling facilities should be considered for this area and your concerns about road safety, signage, pedestrian access, vehicle parking and other issues that affect this area.

The ride will go east on M Street SW and pick up Eye Street, while making stops and notes as we head back west to Waterfront Metro. From there we will optionally explore 4th and P Streets SW. As always, we strongly recommend that you bring a helmet and reserve the right not to allow you on this ride without one. Please plan to arrive about 15 minutes before the ride begins, we will leave the Waterfront Metro Station promptly at 1pm.

Please contact Jeanie Osburn ( if you have questions about the ride. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you and let us know if you have questions.
