The Sherman Avenue Streetscape Project will bring major enhancements to Sherman Avenue, NE between Park Road and Florida Avenue in northwest. Construction is currently underway and slated to be completed in late 2012.
The project design will:
- Make Sherman Avenue feel more residential rather than a commuter route by reducing vehicular lanes to one in each direction.
- Improve pedestrian safety by widening the sidewalks to make them ADA compliant, and upgrading the wheelchair ramps and crosswalk markings.
- Make Sherman Avenue more attractive by planting trees and shrubs along the corridor, upgrading street lights and upgrading traffic signals.
DDOT will also completely reconstruct the roadway, upgrade the DC Water pipes and improve the drainage system along Sherman Avenue. The $13 million project is funded in part by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
