Washington, DC - The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is hosting a public meeting to share plans for a federal transportation planning study that will focus on pedestrian safety for residents and multi-modal transit users at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue, SE and Potomac Avenue, SE. The public is invited to attend and hear about the details of this study and future plans for this area. Representatives from DDOT and the project’s technical team will be on hand to answer questions.
