The District Department of Transportation, in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration, the National Park Service and the Washington Interdependence Council, has completed an Environmental Assessment of alternatives for rehabilitation of the L’Enfant Promenade, located in Southwest DC.
L'Enfant Promenade runs over the 10th Street, SW, alignment from Independence Avenue to Banneker Overlook, linking the National Mall to Maine Avenue and the Southwest Waterfront. The alternatives were developed through the L'Enfant Promenade Urban Design study and are aimed at improving the pedestrian environment and accessibility throughout this area.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has reviewed the Environmental Assessment and issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). Therefore, DDOT will begin to review the preferred alternative, turn it into a detailed design, and then proceed with construction.
