The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is helping to transform the Anacostia Waterfront into a better place for citizens to live, work, and play. As part of the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative (AWI), DDOT is pursuing a plan to reshape the area’s transportation network into one that provides easy access for residents, commuters and visitors, and improves the area’s environmental quality. DDOT’s objective is to reconnect communities through the replacement of outdated and deteriorating facilities with contextsensitive infrastructure solutions. To accomplish these aims in the AWI area, DDOT has developed the Anacostia Waterfront Transportation Infrastructure Master Plan (Master Plan).

The Anacostia Waterfront Initiative (AWI)is a comprehensive plan to restore thelong-neglected Anacostia Waterfront,remove physical barriers in the surroundinginfrastructure, and leverage the community’seconomic growth while preserving its richhistoric and cultural heritage. Since March2000, in an unprecedented partnershipthat was formalized by a Memorandum of Understanding, 20 federal and District of 
Columbia government agencies have been
working together to carry out the AWI vision.The District Department of Transportation(DDOT) is leading this effort through the planning, design and construction of animproved transportation infrastructure that willsupport a transformed Anacostia Waterfront.The AWI Transportation Master Plan describeshow DDOT is helping to build the AWI vision. The transportation infrastructure within theAnacostia Waterfront area must be upgraded tosupport economic development and better serveneighborhoods and the region. Several federalgovernment agencies are relocating to locationsalong the river, and a mix of residential andretail development is moving to the area. In2008, the Washington Nationals’ new ballpark on the riverfront is scheduled to be complete.In short, the area has become one of the fastest-growing centers of employment, entertainment,and residential growth. Improvements to thetransportation network will improve accessand connect new developments to adjacentcommunities and the Washington region as awhole.DDOT actively coordinates with other  participating agencies to ensure that all projectswill improve the health of the river and restorethe landscape. This environmental stewardshipis an integral part of DDOT’s mission to buildtransportation facilities that provide better access to local destinations and improvemobility for everyone throughout the AWI area.Open and ongoing communication with the public is instrumental to the success of theAWI program. Public involvement is vital atevery stage: planning, design and construction.Listening to and collaborating with communitystakeholders is an essential component of all AWI projects. Public involvement andsupport is critical to the success of the program.DDOT and other sponsoring AWI agenciescontinue to seek citizen input through meetings,workshops, phone calls and emails or letters aswork moves forward.More information about the AWI TransportationMaster Plan, Mobility Study, and individual projects is available online at:

Gateway to the Future
 
DDOT’s project development process includes planning, environmental study and documentation, design, and construction andis followed by regular maintenance. The AWI transportation projects, shown on the map on the following page, are in variousstages of project development. Public involvement is a continuous part of the process of developing context sensitive solutions,with multiple opportunities for community stakeholders to provide feedback.
Planning: Getting Started
Planning is the initial stage of a project – when a particular project is rst conceived based on a particular purpose and need.During this rst phase, DDOT begins its comprehensive public collaboration efforts, working with the local community and DC
and federal agencies to align the priorities and policies of a proposed project. Planning studies provide recommendations for near, middle, and long term transportation improvements.
Environmental Studies
The National Environmental Policy Act requires the Federal Highway Administration and DDOT to follow an established process to complete the environmental evaluation of planned projects. Projects are analyzed to consider how they will affect thehuman and natural environment. Typical environmental issues that are analyzed include:Land useImpact to communities
Trafc and safety
Historic and archaeological resourcesParklands and recreational areasNoise/air qualityWater quality and wetlandsEconomic developmentEnvironmental documentation varies in the degree of complexity based on the nature of the project, but must be completed before a project can be built.
Design
The specic design of a project draws heavily upon the public information gathered during the planning and environmental
analysis processes. DDOT’s infrastructure projects include the design of roadways, bridges, bicycle and pedestrian facilities,stormwater systems, and utilities. DDOT puts an emphasis on designing projects with the communities that they serve so that theimprovements are environmentally sensitive and appropriate to the context.
Construction
A project nally takes physical shape during the nal phase – construction – becoming visible to the neighborhood and the trav
-
eling public. DDOT ensures that all projects are built in a safe and efcient manner, and puts a priority on maintaining quality of 
life for neighbors and affected commuters.DDOT continues to move forward with implementing all AWI projects based on community priorities and public input, project
 benets and available funding.
