Sidewalk Widening Begins, Free Bus Rides

From April 2 through November 2016, the Georgetown Business Improvement District reports that it “will implement sidewalk widenings each weekend on the 3200 block of M Street, NW, and offer free D.C. Circulator bus rides in Georgetown along Wisconsin Avenue. … Visitors and residents will enjoy eight more feet of space for an improved pedestrian experience.”  

Sidewalks are temporarily expanded by eliminating parking spaces and placing pedestrian railings on the street along the 3200 block of M Street, just west of the major intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and M Street. Vehicular traffic will continue unimpeded.

According to the Georgetown BID, the sidewalk widening will occur “Saturdays, starting at 6 a.m., through Sundays at 6 p.m., weather permitting, April 2 to early November 2016, weather permitting.”

There will also be discounted parking — $6, all day — at the PMI Garage at 3307 M St. NW on Saturdays and Sundays during the sidewalk widenings. 

In addition, the BID will sponsor free, northbound D.C. Circulator rides on the Union Station-Georgetown route along Wisconsin Avenue, NW, from K Street stops in Georgetown to the top of Book Hill (30th/K, Wisconsin/K, Wisconsin/M, Wisconsin/N, Wisconsin/Q, and Wisconsin/R).
