(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation invites the community to a series of meetings to help plan transportation improvements for the H Street, NE, Corridor.
The meetings will be held at the Capitol Children's Museum Auditorium, 3rd and H Streets, NE, as follows:
- Monday, September 8th 4pm-8pm
- Tuesday, September 9th 2pm-8pm
- Saturday, September 13th 11am-5pm
The meetings are a key part of DDOT's H Street, NE, Corridor Transportation Study, which runs from North Capitol Street to the intersection of Maryland Avenue and Benning and Bladensburg Roads. Attendees will be asked to contribute their own ideas and comment on proposals currently under consideration including new crosswalks, lighting and benches, widened sidewalks opportunities for public art and improved transit service.
Architects, engineers, designers and planners will be on hand to answer questions and discuss ideas at "learning stations" devoted to transit, parking, streetscape changes and other relevant topics. Short overview presentations, to be given on the hour, will orient attendees to the proceedings. Members of the H Street NE community, including residents, merchants, property owners and others are encouraged to attend.
Material from these meetings will be incorporated into the study's recommendations that will be the basis for DDOT's improvements to the H Street Corridor.
For more information, please contact Rachel MacCleery (202) 671-2555 or access 'H Street Transportation Study' under the DDOT's web page.
