    What I have been asking for (and hoping for) ever since I heard about this project is allowing bikes to proceed on red at Pierce St. It's a T-intersection, so there is no conflict with turning cars, similar to how people on the sidewalk can walk past without regard to the light.
    I have asked to consider placing signs: "Bikes may proceed on red after yielding to pedestrians" I think this is a sensible idea and it is currently being discussed in the BAC listserve.

    When they get farther up the street they should do the same thing at Courthouse.

    So many lines it's hard to keep track of them.

    It's possible if they make the bike lane protected through the intersection and place signage like "Stop for Peds" which is what is done on the 15th Street NW protected bike lanes next to the Treasury Department (at F St NW and G St NW).

    However, it might be difficult to incorporate because such a set up could be considered at odds with pedestrian safety. It's easy to imagine an impatient cyclist passing through the intersection and ignoring the right of way of the pedestrians legally crossing in front of them, and I predict it would be a conflict point.

    Sunday morning, no cars parked in the available spaces, just this entitled you-know-what parked in the bike lane just before the start of the right turn lane to Quinn St.

    What a surprise, it's that War of 1812 Maryland license plate that I've learned to hate and fear. You've further fueled my confirmation bias.

    I'm so happy about this! Went to check it out tonight. Bicycling on the protected part felt much more relaxed than on the previous bike lane right next to traffic.

    It's only 0.4 miles but it feels like the beginning of something beautiful!

    Every time I've been by, Dominoes is parked in the bike lane.

    Cattle chutes aren't good if you're a cow.
