Contribute to DDOT's NoMa Biking Study

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is reviewing existing bicycle plans in and around NoMa with the goal of offering recommendations for improved mobility between the neighborhood and downtown D.C. And it needs your help!

The department has created an interactive map for the public to offer information on the best routes as well as any obstacles to safe bicycling. If you regularly ride a bike, consider providing the benefit of your experiences. It will help make the streets better and safer for everyone.

DDOT is accepting public input on the map through Thursday, June 15.
