Huge News!!!

DDOT has begun a transportation and environmental study of the C Street and North Carolina Ave corridor from 21st St. to 15th St. Here is DDOT's door hanger that will be distributed next week. It summarizes the intent of the study and is a parking restriction notice for C Street and North Carolina Ave residents between 21st and 15th Streets.

Currently, the contractor is collecting the existing conditions of the right-of-way, including vehicle volume and speed counts. During the week of December 14 - 18, a survey crew will collect existing right-of way data, including underground utilities, curb and median lines, vegetation, etc.

Below are some of the highlights of the study:

• Community driven study collaborative with DDOT
• District’s first sustainable green street - reduce storm water runoff and improve water quality, reduce heat-island effects, improve tree canopy, etc.
• Design layout to efficiently and safely move people via foot, bicycle, vehicle and transit
