(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host the second public meeting for the Barney Circle and Southeast Boulevard Transportation Planning Study on Thursday, November 21, 2013 to seek community feedback on updated design concepts.
The concepts illustrate ways to transform the Southeast Freeway between 11th Street SE and Barney Circle into a boulevard that integrates with adjacent neighborhoods and provides new connections to the Anacostia River.
Other study aspects include reconstructing Barney Circle to accommodate vehicle turning movements, improving pedestrian and bicyclist access to the river, and evaluating design options that consider multi-modal transportation uses.
The Barney Circle and Southeast Boulevard Transportation Planning Study is one in a series of transportation, environmental, economic, community and recreation projects included in the larger Anacostia Waterfront Initiative (AWI) Program. From the Tidal Basin to the city’s northeast border with Maryland, the 30-year, $10 billion AWI Program is transforming the shores of the Anacostia River into a world-class waterfront.
