Should the Cleveland Park service lane stay or go? Or is there a middle ground that serves the needs of drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists?
The third and final DDOT workshop for the Cleveland Park Transportation Study will be held Wednesday, November 6th, 5:00-8:30 p.m. at the the Cleveland Park library. Participants may drop in at any time.
If you want to see what DDOT presented last month at Workshop 2, check out cptransportationstudy.com. Cleveland Park residents and neighbors were asked for feedback on four options for the service lane (PDF download). A detailed comparison of each option can be found here (PDF download).
The first option makes no changes to the service lane. The other options gradually give more space to pedestrians until the fourth option, which proposes restoring the historic sidewalk and devoting all the service road space to pedestrians.
Many of us go to Cleveland Park to shop and dine out, and depending on how we travel there, we experience different difficulties. On foot, it can be difficult to walk along the service road. By car, it can be difficult to find a parking spot. And the intersection at Connecticut and Ordway doesn’t seem to work for anyone. Let us know what you think the solution is.
