Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study Public Workshop Scheduled for February 2nd

CrosstownMap

The District of Columbia has few east-west network connections north of the original L’Enfant Plan street grid. This makes east-west travel to and from neighborhoods and activity centers challenging as a limited number of corridors carry the majority of the traffic.

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host a public workshop to kick off the Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study on Tuesday February 2, 2016.  The purpose of this workshop is to provide an overview of the project, present existing conditions and data, share key issues, and gather community feedback. The workshop will be open house style. This will be the first of a series of meeting focused on this study.

DDOT is undertaking the Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study to identify improvements along the east-west connections that traverse Wards 1 and 5, address safety concerns, optimize mobility and operations, and improve efficiency for all modes along the corridor. DDOT will work with members of the community and key stakeholders to evaluate and develop a range of physical and operational improvements. The Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study is a key project in DDOT’s 2-Year Action Plan for moveDC, the District of Columbia’s multimodal long-range transportation plan.

Information for the first meeting is below:

WHAT: Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study, Public Workshop #1

WHEN: Tuesday, February 2, 2016, 6 pm to 8 pm.

WHERE: Trinity University Main Hall, O’Connor Auditorium, 125 Michigan Ave., NE

    haha; lemme guess…. Streetcar!? Dear God no.

  2. C Says:

    I don’t think the Mayor is going to be embarking on any street car projects for quite some time. This is a desperately needed study. I hope that they include a detailed look at the North-South feeders into these corridors as well.

  3. L Says:

    I hope they also look at improving pedestrian and bike options on this route.

  4. JJ Says:

    Any chance they will also go ahead with another study after the park morton/bruce monroe transition is completed? it would be a grave waste of money to do a study that will be obsolete in a year.
