Florida Avenue-New York Avenue NE Intersection Project (“Dave Thomas Circle”) Final Design Public Meeting

(Washington, DC) — The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host a virtual public meeting on Monday, November 15, 2021, to present the final design for the Florida Avenue-New York Avenue NE Intersection Project. DDOT is redesigning the intersection, often referred to as “Dave Thomas Circle” or the “Virtual Circle,” to make it safer for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers in support of Mayor Bowser’s Vision Zero initiative to eliminate serious injuries and fatalities on the District’s roadways. Once complete, the redesigned intersection will:

  • Realign and add two-way traffic on First Street, NE;
  • Restore two-way traffic on Florida Avenue, NE;
  • Add protected bicycle lanes that connect to the existing bike network;
  • Add clear, high-visibility crosswalks with audible pedestrian signals and leading pedestrian intervals (LPIs) to make the intersection safer and simpler for pedestrians to navigate; and
  • Create three new public spaces with thoughtful, innovative landscape designs for people to gather.

At this meeting, DDOT will share the final design for the intersection safety project. DDOT will also discuss the plan and timeline for construction, which is estimated to start in Summer 2022. Details of construction phasing will be presented at another public meeting prior to the start of construction. The meeting will consist of a presentation given by DDOT staff, the project team, and partners, followed by a question and answer session.
