We noticed last night that four pairs of diagonal white lines were placed on the four corners of the intersection at 7th & H St NW. Could this be the beginnings of a diagonal crosswalk (AKA scramble pattern)?
Just last year, Oxford Circus in the UK made headlines as they unveiled a diagonal/scramble crossing pattern. An article from the Daily Mail has a great visual of that diagonal crossing.
Editor’s Note (May 7): WTOP.com (local news radio), using PQ Living’s photo and UK Daily Mail references above, confirmed that DDOT will be implementing the Barnes Dance at 7th and H St NW. The new light cycle will kick in by next Wednesday, May 12. Hat tip: Commenter @Katy
