The 14th Street Transportation and Streetscape Design Study was initiated by the Transportation Planning and Policy Administration (TPPA) of the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) to develop streetscape and transportation recommendations to better serve the needs of 14th Street’s pedestrians, vehicle, bicycle, and transit users.
DDOT tasked Michael Baker Jr., Inc. to conduct this study. Key objectives included the establishment of a multi-modal transportation and streetscape plan that:
- Preserves, strengthens, and creates a vibrant commercial and residential corridor,
- Improves safety and mobility throughout the neighborhood commercial center and regional transportation system, and
- Supports and guides current and future area development.
The 14th Street corridor study area spans one mile from Thomas Circle to the intersection with Florida Avenue. It traverses through a mix of residential and commercial uses and provides pedestrian and vehicular connections to bus routes and regional Metrorail systems. The corridor continues to evolve as a destination for business, culture and entertainment. Favorable conditions such as wide sidewalks and manageable traffic conditions allow for considerable opportunity to enhance the attractiveness and functionality of this major travel corridor.
The study was comprised of three main phases:
- Assessment of Existing Conditions
- Development of Improvement Options
- Finalizing the Improvement Recommendations
This study assessed the streetscape and transportation assets and challenges of 14th Street and developed a number of short- and long-term recommendations to strengthen a great residential and business community.
