The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) invites the public to a meeting to take questions and comments on proposed crosswalk safety improvements on Upper Connecticut Avenue, NW.
Marked crosswalks at intersections without traffic signals along Connecticut Avenue, from Appleton Street to Legation Street, have been the source of safety and accessibility concerns for residents. Fourteen pedestrians have been injured and one killed in un-signalized marked crosswalks on upper Connecticut Avenue in the last nine years.
The proposed plan would add two HAWK pedestrian signals, relocate or remove some bus stops to better align with existing signal controlled crossings, and remove some crosswalk markings at remaining un-signalized crossings. Information about the proposed crosswalk safety project will be available for review at the meeting.
