Minnesota Avenue SE Bus Priority

a metrobus on Minnesota ave ne

In spring 2021, DDOT initiated a project to address needs for improved safety and transit on Minnesota Ave SE between Pennsylvania Ave SE and East Capitol St. The project began with completing site visits, field observations, and collecting feedback from residents through canvassing of the corridor and presenting at ANC meetings. Here is the meeting from May 2021:

Minnesota Avenue SE Bus Priority - June Meeting Presentation

The next step was to take the information that was learned during our needs assessment and work across divisions at DDOT and with our colleagues at WMATA to develop concepts for the roadway. Below is a presentation that was made at a virtual public meeting at ANC meetings in September 2021 to provide details on alternatives that we are proposing for Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE:

Please provide comments, questions, and suggestions on these options by October 5th because DDOT is working to begin further design on improvements this fall and implement them in 2022.
