The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has scheduled their second round of public meetings to examine opportunities for public transportation improvements in the North-South corridor through DC for February  18th, 19th, & 20th. The meeting in our area will be held at Banneker Recreation Center (2500 Georgia Ave.) on February 19th. Presentation times are set for 4 pm and 7 pm. If you can not make this meeting, all the meetings should be similar so feel free to attend the meetings that fit into your schedule (flyer here).

DDOT held their first round of public North-South Corridor meetings in November 2013 (my review and opinions of those meetings here).

Details from DDOT’s announcement of the meetings:

The study area is focused on a 9-mile, North-South corridor that connects the Takoma/Silver Spring area to the Buzzard Point/Southwest Waterfront area. The study area extends east to west from about 16th Street on the west to approximately one-quarter mile east of Georgia Avenue.

Community involvement and feedback is essential to helping DDOT and other partnering entities plan, build and operate the best streetcar system possible.

    While the route could absolutely use improvement, they should also concentrate on a beautification aspect of the project similar to Sherman Avenue. There are small stretches of Georgia Avenue that are blighted and full of nefarious businesses. I hope to see a comprehensive approach designed to improve the community as a whole.
