Road Diet Alert: DC will add quick-build bus lanes as part of its COVID-19 response

Buses and cyclists will soon have a little more room to traverse the streets as the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced plans today to establish three dedicated lanes throughout DC, with construction starting late July.

The lanes will permit bus, bike and/or truck only traffic at various times of day, allowing people using those modes to move more efficiently and stay more safely spaced on buses, and to help mitigate traffic congestion.
