The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will hold an informational meeting on Thursday, December 12 regarding updates to the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative (AWI) Transportation Master Plan.
The meeting will involve a short overview presentation followed by an Open House to allow the public to ask questions and learn more about the various DDOT AWI transportation projects and other major initiatives by partnering agencies being coordinated and included in the planned update to the AWI Master Plan. The 2008 update to the Master Plan may be viewed athttp://www.anacostiawaterfront.org/awi-documents/2008-awi-transportation-master-plan/.
The Master Plan organizes transportation studies, projects and other initiatives within the AWI Program area into a comprehensive plan in order to develop efficient and practical ways for these projects to be designed and constructed in coordination with one another based on such factors as benefits to the community, cost, duration of construction, environmental impacts, and funding.The Anacostia Waterfront Initiative (AWI) is a 30-year, $10 billion series of transportation, environmental, economic, community and recreation projects that are transforming the shores of the Anacostia River into a world-class waterfront. The AWI Program area stretches from the Tidal Basin to the city’s northeast border with Maryland.

Much of the items in the 2008 plan are well behind schedule. By this plan, the ART should be finished as should the Middle Anacostia Crossing, etc...Which reminds me that the NE section of the ART did not break ground in Fall (I guess it still has a few weeks) of this year.
Anyway, lots of bike-relevant projects (bridges, trails, interchanges) in this area.
