The District Department of Transportation will announce recommended safety improvements for 17th and 19th Streets at a meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 26, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm at Friendship Charter School Blow Pierce Campus (700 19th Street NE). Recommendations will represent the consensus of feedback from the three 17th & 19th Street meetings held this summer. Read recaps of the public charrette meeting #1 and meeting #2.
Short, medium and long-term recommendations along with implementation timelines will be provided by DDOT and the consulting firm assigned to the project, McKissack & McKissack. Following the Sept. 26 meeting, affected ANCs, including ANC 6B, will be notified of the recommendations and project design will commence. I’m pleased that DDOT will be announcing a range of recommendations, including improvements that can be implemented quickly.
If you live on or near 17th and 19th Streets, please mark your calendars and plan to join us on Sept. 26.
