The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), in cooperation with the National Park Service (NPS) and National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC), have prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Pennsylvania Avenue-Minnesota Avenue, SE. Intersection Improvement Project. The EA analyzes a range of alternatives for the proposed action to improve safety, mobility, and connectivity for pedestrians and motorists at the intersection of Pennsylvania and Minnesota Avenues, SE (i.e., Twining Square) in keeping with the District of Columbia’s Great Streets Initiative .
The public comment period for the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the improvements to the intersection at Pennsylvania Avenue and Minnesota Avenue in southeast Washington (Twining Square ) has been extended for an additional 30 days. The comment period will now end on Tuesday, December 31, 2013.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), which is the lead agency for the EA, is granting this extension to give the public enough time to review the document and provide comments, taking into account the holiday season.
