Two community briefings have been set to allow local transportation officials to share plans for the proposed K Street Busway -- a high capacity, high-performance transit system linking Union Station with Georgetown via K Street -- with the community the proposed Busway will serve. The briefings, hosted by the District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT) and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro), are for interested individuals to ask questions, discuss ideas with the project team, and learn more about the Busway concept.
The meetings will be on:
||Monday, December 8, at 8:30 AM (open house at 8 AM)|
Great Hall, Room # 301
The Charles Sumner School
1201 17th Street, NW
||Thursday, December 11 at 7 PM (open house at 6 PM)|
Francis Jr. High School
2425 N Street, NW (corner of 24th and N Streets, NW)
The proposal calls for the reconstruction of K Street through the central core of Washington, DC, creating an exclusive Busway in the street median. In addition, pedestrian and traffic operations improvements are planned for the corridor including areas west of Washington Circle to Georgetown and east of Mt. Vernon to Union Station.
The principle bus service planned for the facility will include the new Downtown Circulator. Phase I of the Circulator will consist of a crosstown high capacity, high performance service connecting Union Station, the Washington Convention Center, and Georgetown via the K Street Busway. The service would operate throughout the day with a high level of frequency and would use specially designed low-floor buses to maximize operations and passenger convenience.
