The results of a DC Department of Transportation study of pedestrian habits and concerns were released today. Among the concerns of Ward 3 respondants were:
-The safety and access traversing Wisconsin and Connecticut Avenues (Conn. Ave was listed as the most feared);
-The Friendship Heights Metro Station and Rock Creek Park were listed as among the most difficult destinations to reach.
Perhaps some of the novel approaches to safety for pedestrians currently under examination by DDOT are to be commended!
