(Washington, DC) – The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) reminds the public that by 5 pm on Monday, October 1, 2012 comments are due regarding three proposed transportation alternatives and other informational materials presented at the final M Street SE/SW Transportation Study public meeting in September 2012.
These comments will help the agency complete this stage of the planning process and move on to more detailed study of premium transit while addressing short-term improvements in neighborhood transportation.
To solicit broad input on tradeoffs, the alternatives represent three starkly contrasting scenarios for improving the multi-modal transportation network along M Street SE/SW and adjacent streets.
The next stage is to complete an environmental planning process, which may result in a hybrid or combination of the alternatives that were shown at the public meeting or entirely new ideas. DDOT plans to initiate that process, which will include additional public outreach and input, in the near future.
Three-dimensional animated models of the alternatives, as well as presentations and informational materials from each of study’s public meetings, can be viewed by visiting www.anacostiawaterfront.org/MStreetSESWStudy .
Public comments about each alternative will help staff determine and refine the transportation alternatives included in the study report later this fall.
Comments should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, mailed to Colleen Hawkinson, District Department of Transportation, 55 M Street SE, Suite 500, Washington DC 20003 or faxed to her attention at (202) 671-0617.
The study is being conducted to identify transportation issues and potential solutions that will help to encourage livable and sustainable neighborhoods. The focus area lies within a roughly 1.7-square-mile area along M Street SE/SW and the Southwest Waterfront from 12th Street, SE to 14th Street, SW and from the Southwest/Southeast Freeway south to the Anacostia River/Washington Channel.
