2014 USGS Map Shows Road Classifications in Neighborhood
Following up on last week’s community meeting with DDOT and my longstanding interest in improving our streets, bike lanes, sidewalks, and tree canopy, I’ve begun a deep dialogue with DDOT asking for a wide range of statistics, funding details, and road history. This will eventually lead to a community task force and collaboration with Advisory Neighborhood Commission 1B’s Transportation Committee. If you are interesting in working with this group, let me know by sending an email to me at 1A08(at)anc.dc.gov.
One aspect of street improvements that has continually been a barrier in past conversations with DDOT has been the classification of our streets. Interestingly, I was able to find a 2014 U.S. Geological Survey map of D.C. which shows the street classifications which I wanted to share. I find it interesting, for example, that Quebec Place, Park Place, and Warder are all classed as local connectors. These streets are widely different in character. None-the-less, its a good place to start in order to begin understanding how we can better manage our public resources in the area.
