C Street, NE Workshop this Saturday!

DDOT is hosting the first C Street, NE Study & Conceptual Design Workshop this Saturday!

When: January 2, 2010 from 10am - Noon

Where: Maury Elementary School Cafeteria, 1250 Constitution Ave, NE

What: The workshop will be a non-formal exercise in discussing and
conceptually designing DC's first sustainable green street with a central focus on creating a connective corridor for pedestrians, cyclists an motorists between Capitol Hill and the Anacostia River.

Hopefully this will be a really fun and stimulating collaborative workshop for those interested on how to successfully implement a balance between efficiently calming automobile traffic and creating a safe and enjoyable pedestrian/cyclist greenway.

There will be large maps of the entire corridor to mark up to visualize the group's design goals and ideas. Bill Schultheiss, Transportation Engineer and Project Manager, will facilitate a discussion of potential alternatives whereupon up to 3 designs will be evaluated by Toole Group design team (DDOT's contractor for the study and design). Preliminary traffic speeds, volume and accident data will be available.

All are invited to attend and participate, so we hope to see you there...and have a rockin' New Year's Eve!
