District officials said they expect to open new bike lanes from Thomas Circle to 28th Street NW in the next two to three weeks.

Sam Zimbabwe, an associate director at the District’s Department of Transportation, said the lanes — or cycle track, as it is called — is the “complement to the L street lane” that opened in November 2012.

But this new bike lane will be slightly different. It will have parking between the bike lane and the car lanes.

D.C. transportation officials said its bike lane on L Street has shown “strong growth” and they believe the new ones should “help even more.”
