(Washington, DC) — The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is embarking on a public outreach tour to all eight wards of the District to discuss the city’s transit future, including streetcars, and the first stop is in Ward 6 tomorrow night. DDOT is hosting an open house from 7 – 8:30 pm at J.O. Wilson Elementary School, 660 K Street, NE.
