Public meeting tonight on transportation plans for the next 6 years: have your voice heard

Do you have something to say about transportation plans for the city? Tonight at the Petworth Library at 4200 Kansas Ave NW (at Upshur and Georgia) there's a meeting to collect public feedback on transportation projects for the next 6 years. Here's the details.

I definitely would like to talk about congestion on 14th Street and buses that stop every block. Any other ideas?

DDOT to Hold Public Meetings for Statewide Transportation Improvement Program


The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will hold two public meetings to present for public feedback the transportation projects included in the Fiscal Years 2015 to 2021 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The public is invited to participate in one of the following meetings:

When: December 2, 2014 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Where: Petworth Neighborhood Library
4200 Kansas Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20011

When: December 3, 2014 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Where: Department of Employment Services
4058 Minnesota Avenue NE
Washington, DC 20019

The STIP is a statewide prioritized funding program of transportation projects covering a six-year period that is consistent with the long-range statewide transportation plan, also known as moveDC. The STIP includes those projects with federal funding and/or regional significance, but it does not include individual projects with 100% local funding to address local transportation needs (these are included in the District's Capital Budget process). At the meetings, DDOT will present the Draft FY 2015 to 2021 STIP Project List, which includes information on the type of project, project funding, and the estimated project schedule. In addition, DDOT will provide an overview of the STIP and how it was developed. The Draft FY 2015 to 2021 Project List is located here on DDOT's website.


  1. I'd like to see a southern entrance to the Columbia Heights metro stop. It would be a small project that would increase metro accessibility for Malcolm X Park and the new developments north of Florida on 14th.

  2. It would be great if they could syncronize some of the lights on 14th street to aid traffic flow, especially around the Monroe and Park intersections.

  3. A 14th street express bus would be wonderful! It might just be easier to make the Circulator bus stop somewhere between U Street and Columbia Road.
