(News Release: February 24, 2019)—

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host the first of three public meetings for the Parkside Access and Circulation Study on Saturday, March 9, 2019 from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm at the Educare located at 640 Anacostia Ave NE, Washington, DC 20019, Washington, DC 20019.

The purpose of this project is to identify critical issues and challenges related to the overall transportation accessibility to and within the Parkside community. DDOT’s inherent goal is to leverage a highly efficient and balanced transportation infrastructure for the benefit of the community and surrounding areas. The project team is tasked with developing a multimodal transportation network plan that will improve the access and circulation needs of the Parkside Neighborhood.

At the first public meeting, DDOT will introduce the project, share data collected from existing resources and site surveys, and provide opportunities for participants to provide the study team with their ideas. During the first public meeting, DDOT will conduct a neighborhood walk with the members of the community to identify challenges, issues, and effective solutions in the Parkside study area.

The Parkside Access and Circulation Study limits are Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue to the north; Benning Road, NE to the south; Anacostia River to the west, and Minnesota Avenue to the east.

A map of the study area can be found on the project website https://ddot.dc.gov/page/parkside-study.
