Nearly all the approvals are in place for a plan to put five Capital Bikeshare stations on the National Mall.

The Capital Bikeshare program could soon be expanding to the National Mall. The Mall may soon get a splash of red and yellow, courtesy of five of the bike sharing stations that may soon be placed around the area, which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the District. 

The National Capital Planning commission and the U.S. Commission on Fine  Arts have already approved the plan this week, according to the Associated press, but the final okay must come from the National Park Service. The first rack of bikes would be placed near the Martin Luther King Jr. and Franklin Delano Roosevelt monuments just in time for the cherry blossom festival, which kicks off this month. 

The other stations could be in place by July 4.
