North-South Corridor Meeting

DDOT will be hosting a public meeting on Monday evening to discuss the North-South Corridor Planning Study, a 9-mile corridor connecting Buzzard Point with Takoma. The study area extends east-west from about 16th Street, NW on the west to approximately one-quarter mile east of Georgia Avenue, NW.  A streetcar line is planned to connect these areas and the study to determine alignment will last one year. After the one-year study period, there will be an environmental review and then potentially the start of construction. There will be four meetings, but the one located in Southwest will be on Monday, November 4 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at St. Augustine's Episcopal Church (600 M Street). Two more sets of public meetings will be held during the study period.

Wow it would be nice to have a little bit of notice about these meetings. Missed the Monday meeting so I looked up when the next meeting was to be held and discovered that DDOT has crammed ALL of the meetings for the entire city into three consecutive days!!!

I have the strong suspicion DDOT did this in order to minimize attendance and feedback.
