MoveDC Long Range Transportation Plan Available for Public Comment
Luz Lazo reports on the draft of MoveDC, released this week by the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) for public comment. Among the big ticket items Lazo identifies: "toll lanes at major entry points into the city," and "a streetcar system, dedicated bus lanes in major commuter corridors, expanded Metrorail service in the downtown core, an active water taxi system and 200 miles of on-street bicycle facilities."
"Widening the transportation choices and deterring personal vehicle use are key to meeting the increasing demand for transit in a city that projects 170,000 new residents and 200,000 additional jobs in the next 25 years, D.C. transportation officials say," reports Lazo.
The Post is also running an explainer post that drills down on some of the components of the plans, including plans for pedestrians, bicycling, transit, and vehicular transportation.
