12th Street South between S Monroe Street and S Glebe Road in the Douglas Park neighborhood.
Based on County Board Guidance on the FY 23-32 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), this project is being indefinitely deferred. Funding allocated to this project will be “redirected to support future priority projects within the Columbia Pike Bike Boulevard Program. Staff will conduct additional feasibility and scoping work that would focus on completing the Bike Boulevards throughout the Columbia Pike corridor and specifically addressing areas where gaps exist.”
The project may be revisited in the future, “triggered by changing conditions including development opportunities, multimodal corridor needs, and other County priorities.”
12th Street South is one of the Columbia Pike Bike Boulevards, which provides a low-stress east-west route for bicyclists parallel to Columbia Pike. The block of 12th Street South between S Glebe Road and S Monroe Street is currently a gap in street grid and requires bicyclists to divert onto a sidepath for one block. 12th Street South is identified as a constructed street connection in the Master Transportation Plan as well as the Columbia Pike Form-Based Code map.
