Proposed changes to Penn-Potomac intersection from 2005 Middle Anacostia River Crossings Study.

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will hold a Pennsylvania-Potomac Avenue Intersection Environmental Planning & Pedestrian Safety Study Public Meeting on Thursday, January 31, 6:30 pm – 8: 30 pm at Payne Elementary School, 305 15th Street SE. At the meeting, DDOT will update the community on plans to improve the intersection.

DDOT is also planning a February 2013 meeting on another major transportation project in Hill East – the reconstruction of Barney Circle and creation of the Southeast Boulevard. I’ll provide date, time and location details for the ¬†Barney Circle-Southeast Boulevard Environmental Assessment Study Public Meeting as soon the information is finalized by DDOT.

To learn more about these two major projects, read my Dec. 3, 2012 blog post.

    I hope to make it to the meeting, I am looking forward to this intersection being redesigned.

    I wonder how all the buses are going to fit in this plan? I don’t see enough curb space for all the buses we currently have. Here’s a list of the buses: 32, 34, 36, 39, A11, B2, J13, K11, M6, V7, V8, V9, and the new Circulator bus.

    The M6 and Circulator buses are the end of the line at Potomac Ave, so they need room to wait for the start of the next route, which is called out in the new plan, but then seems to leave no room for buses stopping along their routes.
