Schlesinger, who led an award-winning architectural practice in Georgetown for more than 60 years, died on March 4 at the age of 95.
The preliminary plans include “tactical” concrete sidewalks along the 3400-3500 blocks of Water Street, along with a two-way bikeway, a traffic roundabout and changes to on-street parking.
Because the changes have caused unacceptable congestion during evening rush hour, the BID and the District Department of Transportation are making three modifications, effective immediately.
The main problem so far is when cars (and a tourist bus or two) park in the bike lanes. Even police patrol cars can be seen sitting in a lane.
Drivers should anticipate delays on and under the Whitehurst Freeway on May 3 and 4.
