2nd Phase of Public Meetings for the North-South Corridor Planning Begin Today

February 18, 2014

North South study second phaseDDOT’s second series of public meetings related to their North-South Corridor Planning Study begins today. The meeting for our area will be at Banneker Recreation Center tomorrow, with presentations at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is in the middle of a planning study to examine opportunities for public transportation improvements in the North-South corridor through DC. Over the next year, DDOT will be working in collaboration with the community, area businesses, government agencies, and other stakeholders to identify and evaluate above-ground, high quality transit service.

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.

Meetings will be open house style with two opportunities for residents to hear an overview presentation. Each meeting will cover the same information, so feel free to attend any of the meetings that fit into your schedule.
