(Washington, DC) The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) are hosting the third public meeting for the Anacostia Streetcar Phase 2 Environmental Assessment and Historic Preservation Study, on Wednesday, June 29, 2011.
At this meeting the study team will provide an update on the status of the route alternatives that are being evaluated to create a transit connection between the Anacostia Metrorail Station and the 11th Street Bridge.
Several of the proposed route alternatives that were presented at the last public meeting held for this study have been removed from consideration based on consistency with overall study goals and objectives, community input and technical evaluation. The study team will continue to further evaluate the remaining alternatives throughout the summer and will aim to identify the alternative that best meets the transit needs of the community by fall 2011.
Residents, members of the business community and other interested stakeholders are encouraged to attend this meeting and provide comments to help shape the outcome of the study.
