(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT), on behalf of Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, invites you to a press conference to announce plans for the highly anticipated H Street and Benning Road Great Street Streetscape and Streetcar Project. Work on Benning Road began in late December 2007.
H Street NE and Benning Road are vital corridors serving the near northeast communities in the District of Columbia. Plans for their improvement began with community and business leadership and vision. DDOT is pleased to be able to make that vision a reality through the investment of over $50 million in streetscape, safety, and transit improvements that will transform the corridor from 3rd Street to Oklahoma Avenue NE.
