DDOT has initiated the Lower Georgia Avenue Transportation and Streetscape Study. This study is part of the Great Streets Initiative, a multi-year, multiple-agency effort to transform under-invested corridors into thriving and inviting neighborhood centers. Great Streets uses public actions and tools such as the designs that will come out of this study, to leverage private investment. Georgia Avenue, NW has been identified as a Great Street, and as such, DDOT and its partner agencies want to improve transportation services along the corridor to facilitate expanded local economic development and mobility. By addressing the transportation mobility challenges, DDOT will contribute to the livability and economic successes of the area.

Lower Georgia Avenue Transportation and Streetscape Study

Project Overview
DDOT has initiated the Lower Georgia Avenue Transportation and Streetscape Study. This study is part of the Great Streets Initiative, a multi-year, multiple-agency effort to transform under-invested corridors into thriving and inviting neighborhood centers. Great Streets uses public actions and tools such as the designs that will come out of this study, to leverage private investment. Georgia Avenue, NW has been identified as a Great Street, and as such, DDOT and its partner agencies want to improve transportation services along the corridor to facilitate expanded local economic development and mobility. By addressing the transportation mobility challenges, DDOT will contribute to the livability and economic successes of the area. DDOT will collaborate with the community and partner agencies to develop a consensus vision for a multimodal transportation design and management plan that will preserve, strengthen and create a vibrant diversified corridor and commercial neighborhood, while at the same time improve the efficiency of movement of all modes through this principal arterial as part of a city and regional transportation system. The project team will seek solutions to the transportation challenges by following the 5 Great Street Principles: 1) Strengthening the environment for local businesses, institutions and services along the corridor 2) Improving the natural environment including thriving street trees, low-impact design and green space 3) Creating a sustainable transportation network offering many efficient travel options 4) Creating distinct streets that reflect local history, character, and priorities 5) Increasing community ownership and pride

Project Study Area
This project will only study a portion of the entire Great Streets corridor – Georgia Avenue, NW from Florida Avenue NW to New Hampshire Avenue, NW. However, since improvements to this segment will have implications for communities along the corridor and throughout the city, DDOT will study the impacts on adjacent corridors and communities. Project Boundaries • New Hampshire Avenue NW to the north • Florida Avenue NW to the south • The Reservoir/4th Street NW to the east • Sherman Avenue NW to the west
