The District of Columbia (DC/District) Department of Transportation (DDOT) Policy for Access to the District of Columbia Interstate and Freeway System (Policy) is hereby established to define procedures for reviewing and approving requests for new or modified access to the system. The intent of this Policy is to be fully compliant with Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) authority (23 U.S.C. 111) and policy (74 Federal Register 165 [27 August 2009], pp. 43743-43746) specific to the Interstate System and to establish similar technical and procedural requirements for the non-interstate network (other freeways, expressways, and limited-access principal arterials) within the District.
