DDOT is considering replacing the Long Bridge (the railroad bridge across the Potomac) and some of the alternatives considered thus far would include a new bicycle crossing connecting Long Bridge Park and/or the MVT on the Virginia side with Ohio Drive on both sides of East Potomac Park, the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail and/or 12th Street in SW DC. They're currently in Phase II of the study which involves defining the purpose and need and identifying some preliminary concept alternatives. As part of this process they're having their 2nd public meeting, for public scoping, on Sept 14th.
The scoping meeting will focus on recent project activities, next steps in the study process, the proposed EIS Study Area, the purpose and need for the project, alternative screening criteria, environmental impacts to be considered and evaluated, and methodologies to be used for evaluating impacts.
Phase II of the study should wrap up by the end of the year, according to the schedule today, and Phase III in Spring 2019. This puts it a little behind, as in February, we were to be starting Phase III around now and finishing it in Winter 2018.
