The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) initiated the Rock Creek West II (RCW2) Livability Study to take a big picture look at the street network and identify concrete actions to increase transportation and safety options. This project focused on transportation safety and quality of life issues for all users.

The Final Report was completed in February 2011. It is a comprehensive summary of the work done and conclusions reached during the RCW2 study. The Appendices contain supporting detailed technical information including public comments and design drawings.
