About the H Street Great Streets Project
The H Street Project is part of the multi-agency Great Streets Initiative that strategically targets major corridors in the city with infrastructure improvements that are aimed at fostering more livable communities, promoting economic development and improving mobility for residents. The project limits include H Street NE between 3rd Street and the Starburst Intersection. Construction on this project started in September 2008 and is slated to be entirely completed later this year.
