DDOT initiated the Environmental Assessment and Historic Preservation Study for the Anacostia Streetcar Extension in December 2010. The study was originally anticipated to be completed by fall 2011; however, in order to continue provide the extensive level of public outreach that has been provided on this study and to complete the historic preservation evaluation DDOT will aim to complete the study by spring 2012. The study is intended to identify the best alternative that will address the project’s purpose and need, maximize environmental benefits, and minimize the potential for adverse impacts. In addition, DDOT will evaluate potential effects to cultural resources in accordance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
