Benning Road Reconstruction and Streetcar Project Public Meeting #1

 

(Washington, DC) -- The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) invites the public to participate in a Thursday, September 19, 2019, open house to kick off the Benning Road Reconstruction and Streetcar Project (the Project). As part of the ongoing Benning Road and Bridges Transportation Improvements Environmental Assessment (EA), DDOT has initiated this preliminary design project to advance the development of EA Build Alternative 2, aimed at improving the Benning Road corridor to safely and efficiently accommodate all modes of transportation. The Project will also study potential modifications of the DC 295 and Benning Road interchange. The purpose of the open house is for DDOT to provide an overview of the project and receive public input.

The Benning Road Reconstruction and Streetcar project seeks to provide better transit connections along approximately two miles of Benning Road NE from Oklahoma Avenue NE to East Capitol Street. The project will address infrastructure needs and deficiencies identified in the study area, including:

  • Extending streetcar transit service to the Benning Road Metrorail station on a center-running alignment
  • Enhancing safety and operations along the corridor and at key intersections
  • Improving transportation infrastructure conditions
  • Rehabilitating roadways and bridges that cross the Anacostia River, DC-295, and CSX freight rail tracks
  • Enhancing and installing pedestrian and bicycle facilities
     

What:                Benning Road Reconstruction and Streetcar Project, Open House #1

When:               Thursday, September 19, 2019, | 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Where:              Department of Employment Services (DOES)

                          4058 Minnesota Avenue, NE

                          Washington, DC 20019
 

Public engagement will be continuous throughout the preliminary design project, which is expected to conclude in 2020.  If it is determined that the Build Alternative will not result in significant environmental impacts, the District may then move the project forward through subsequent final design and construction phases.

For more information about the project and the ongoing EA, please contact DDOT Project Manager, Robyn Jackson, at [email protected] or (202) 671-5110 or visit the updated project website at www.BenningProject.com.
