Alabama Avenue SE Corridor Safety Improvements Project

Project Summary

The Alabama Avenue Corridor Safety Improvements Project provides an opportunity to thoroughly assess all traffic and safety concerns for all transportation modes along Alabama Avenue SE. The project study area extends from Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue SE to Bowen Road SE/Ridge Road SE. The Alabama Avenue corridor was studied in 2017, and draft recommendations were developed. DDOT has implemented several improvements since the completion of the original study. DDOT will conduct community engagement throughout the project development process. 

Study Area

The study area for the Alabama Avenue SE corridor runs from Martin Luther King Jr (MLK Jr) Avenue SE (southern end of the corridor) to Bowen Road SE/Ridge Road SE (northern end of the corridor). The length of the corridor is approximately 4.2 miles, spanning Wards 7 and 8.
