DDOT is hosting a meeting on the Florida Avenue Multimodal Transportation Project next Tuesday night from 6:30 to 8:00pm
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) invites you to a public meeting Tuesday, February 21, 2017, to provide an update on the preliminary engineering of multimodal transportation improvements along Florida Avenue NE from First Street NE to H Street/Benning Road NE.
The purpose of this project is to provide streetscape and traffic operational enhancements to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists while ensuring all users have safe access within and through this important corridor. At this meeting, the 30 percent design plans will be shared to further refine the recommendations provided during the final design phase.
This will be an update on this project which will create a shared use path on the south side of Florida Avenue between 2nd and 3rd Street NE, a shared-use lane (sharrows) under the railroad overpass, and bike lanes in both directions between 3rd Street NE and 8th Street NE. Last March when the report was released, they were still evaluating the inclusion of bike lanes on the section of Florida Avenue between 8th Street NE and West Virginia Avenue. Hopefully they'll make that known on Tuesday.
