Lower Georgia Avenue Transportation and Streetscape Improvements

Lower Georgia Avenue Transportation and Streetscape Improvements

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,859|Likes:
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) commissioned a detailed study
of strategic transportation improvements that could improve multimodal mobility in
the Georgia Avenua corridor, while enhancing the public realm with a consistent and
attractive streetscape.

This project examined a specific portion of the entire Georgia Avenue Great Streets corridor: Georgia and Sherman Avenues from Florida Avenue NW to New Hampshire Avenue NW.

Understanding that improvements to this segment will have implications for communities along the corridor and throughout the city, DDOT also studied the impacts on adjacent corridors and communities.
