AlleyPalooza is a District-wide initiative to repair or renovate alleys across all eight wards. During each AlleyPalooza campaign, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) completes renovations to eight in each of the District’s eight wards over 12 weeks. Mayor Bowser launched AlleyPalooza in 2015, and since then, DDOT has improved over 400 alleys. In April 2018, Mayor Bowser launched PaveDC a comprehensive plan to repair all District alleys in poor condition by 2021 and all roadways in poor condition by 2024. The initiative is accompanied by PaveDC, an interactive map of planned and completed paving projects.
