The reversible lane that runs through Cleveland Park converts the three-lanes in each direction on Connecticut Avenue to “a freeway” claim opponents of the road. During morning rush hour, the center lane becomes a fourth southbound lane, and in afternoon rush hour, the center lane becomes a fourth northbound lane. Confusion inevitably reins and can be dangerous claim many neighborhood residents.
Greater Greater Washington explores the issue in a recent article, joining with two neighborhood ANCs (3F and 3C) asking the city’s Department of Transportation to conduct a study and analyze a range of possible improvements and the possible benefits and consequences of each, with “the goal of improving the quality of life for all of the people who live, work, and travel along Connecticut Avenue.”
Supporters of the proposal are asked to sign a petition, which can be accessed in the article here.
