In anticipation of the beginning of operations for DC Streetcar, DDOT and several first responders will hold a DC Streecar emergency drill on H Street NE to prepare for real-world streetcar operations and emergencies on the H Street/Benning Road corridor.
The exercise will test operational coordination and preparedness of DC Streetcar and first responders in the event of a collision involving a streetcar. Read more in DDOT's press release.
The exercise requires a temporary closure of H Street NE between 12th Street and 13th Street in both directions. In addition, there will be parking restrictions on 12th Street and H Street.
