Norton to Host Community Meeting on Louisiana Avenue Bike Lane, October 24
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) will host a community meeting on the construction of a protected bike lane between Union Station and the U.S. Capitol Grounds on Louisiana Avenue on Wednesday, October 24, 2018, from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., in 2253 Rayburn House Office Building (Second Floor). Norton got report language in the fiscal year 2017 omnibus appropriations bill supporting the construction of the Louisiana Avenue bike lane. The Congresswoman will lead a panel featuring public officials and biking advocates to discuss the latest updates on the project and solicit public feedback on the plans for the project. The meeting is open to the public and residents are highly encouraged to attend.
“The biking community and I have been struggling for years to get the Louisiana Avenue protected bike lane, which has overwhelming support from the community and public officials,” Norton said. “This lane will fill a missing link between the District’s biking networks, and will help protect cyclists, who include commuters, residents, visitors and congressional staffers. Our meeting will provide an update on the project’s details, allowing residents an opportunity to offer feedback.”
