Bike lane on a street near Eastern MarketThe District Department of Transportation is planning to start extending a bike lane in Northeast before winter hits, and two other upgrades are in the works.

A two-way protected bike lane will be installed on 1st Street NE between G Street NE and Massachusetts Avenue NE starting in late November, DDOT bicycle program specialist Mike Goodno said.

The new section just west of Union Station is expected to take six months to complete and will extend the 1st Street NE lane installed in May.

“It will be one long network,” Goodno said.

A protected bike lane extension on M Street NE from 1st Street NE to the Metropolitan Branch Trail near Delaware Avenue NE is pending approval, the DDOT rep said.

A lane extension crossing the National Mall is also pending approval. That project would create a lane on 4th Street SW between School Street SW (near the L’Enfant Plaza Metro station) and Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
