A New U Street

U Street, the main commerical corridor in my neighborhood, is in line for a bit of a makeover. Dave Alpert’s rundown of the good ideas and missed opportunities is worth checking out even for those who don’t live in the neighborhood as it illustrates some general principles. As an area resident, one thing I’d like to see would be bike lines on V Street and W Street — the narrow one-way streets just south of U (T, R, and Q) have them, so I don’t see why their more northerly counterparts can’t as well, both streets are just the right width.
