FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Washington, DC) - The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will kick off a series of public events on the design phase of the 16th Street NW Bus Lanes Project. As part of the events, DDOT will provide a project overview, present roadway layouts, and gather feedback.
The 16th Street NW Bus Lanes Project is an effort to improve bus service and reliability in the 16th Street NW corridor. The corridor was identified as a transit priority in moveDC, the District's multimodal transportation plan. In April 2016, DDOT released the 16th Street NW Transit Priority Planning Study, which proposed a set of recommendations to advance to the design phase. The recommendations included peak-hour, peak-direction bus lanes; bus service changes; bus stop improvements; and transit priority infrastructure. The project's design phase will use recommendations from the 16th Street NW Transit Priority Planning Study to begin environmental documentation, and to develop preliminary engineering designs.
There are three opportunities to provide input on this phase of the project. All events will cover the same material and seek public feedback.
