Thank you providing your concerns on the three interactive maps about pedestrian, bicycle and motor vehicle safety concerns along the study corridor.
You provided valuable information about locations where you believe are walking and/or biking-friendly, or un-friendly, where you think improvements are needed and that are unsafe for those traveling the corridor via foot/transit, bicycle or car. The comments have been summarized and are being used to develop safety improvements along Maryland Avenue, NE.
