"Rolling" BAC Facilities Meeting 8.28.2021

Come join the BAC Facilities Committee in Ward 5 for an in-person "rolling" meeting (on bikes) on Saturday morning, August 28. We will meet at Fort Lincoln Park, on the hill at the intersection of Fort Lincoln Dr NE & 31st Pl NE.

The following topics/projects will be covered during this ride:

•Lincoln Connector Trail

•Arboretum Bridge & Trail

•West Virginia Ave PBLs

•New York Ave Trail

•Bladensburg Streetscape project

Our route will start in Fort Lincoln; we'll ride through Langdon Park and head into Trinidad, ending near the Rhode Island Metro Station. We will be bicycling ~8 miles total, on roads both with and without bike lanes. We'll get to ride on the newly installed West Virginia Avenue protected bike lanes, discuss New York Ave and Bladensburg Rd project scopes (from the safety of adjacent streets), and finish our ride along the Metropolitan Branch Trail. There will be a couple DDOT staff and other community members on the ride with us to share updates on the projects listed above.

If you have any questions about this ride, please feel free to contact Parraize Butler - Ward 5 BAC rep. We're looking forward to seeing you!
