The Capital Bikeshare station currently located on the sidewalk near the C & O Canal Wisconsin Avenue bridge in Georgetown will be relocated farther south to 1041 Wisconsin Ave. NW in the street. The station is being moved because of a new condo project that will not allow for enough space on the sidewalk.
The site of the new location currently hosts four metered parking spots. Three of those spots will be removed to fit the bike station.
To make up for the loss of spaces, the Georgetown Advisory Neighborhood Commission has asked the District Department of Transportation to remove a loading zone next to the bank to free up a parking space. Additionally, the ANC asked that the individual parking meters on the west side of the street will be converted into one multi-space meter to allow more cars to park on that side of the street.
The station will be 60 feet long with docks for 23 bikes.
