Project Overview: DDOT has begun a transportation and environmental study of the C Street and North Carolina Avenue corridor from 21st St. to 14th St., NE. The study is a result of community requests for safety and environmental improvements to the C St NE corridor. Results and recommendations from the study will be used to develop a preliminary design for the District’s first sustainable green street to efficiently and safely move people via foot, bicycle, transit and motor-vehicle. It is DDOT’s goal that this project be a community driven study that strives to attain an integrated infrastructure balancing the functions of mobility, safety, community connectivity, urban design and environmental sustainability.

The project will define means to improve safety for residents and school children, reduce storm water runoff and reduce traffic speeds. The findings and recommendations of the study will be reported back to the community for review and comment.
