Duke Street overhaul moving forward with new advisory group

A new group is being tasked with heading up the city’s plans to overhaul Duke Street.

The Duke Street In Motion Advisory Group is tasked with guiding the new eponymous Duke Street In Motion project — which aims to make adjust the arterial road to emphasize public transit, make improvements to bicycle/pedestrian safety and other changes.

The Duke Street In Motion advisory group was formed at the March 8 City Council meeting and applications are open now through March 27.

“If you are interested in applying to be one of four at-large, or one small-business owner, positions on the committee, or would like additional information about the purpose and responsibilities of the committee, please click on the following links,” the city said in a release. “The deadline for Advisory Group applications is March 27, 2022, at 9 p.m.”

The goal is, in part, to create bus rapid transit lines along Duke Street similar to the Potomac Yard transitway and the planned West End transitway. The city’s website noted that buses aren’t a “competitive” option compared to cars for getting along Duke Street, which Duke Street In Motion aims to change. Whether that entails dedicated bus lanes remains to be seen.
