The District of Columbia has few east-west network connections north of the original L'Enfant Plan street grid. This makes east-west travel to and from neighborhoods and activity centers challenging as a limited number of corridors carry the majority of the traffic. DDOT is undertaking the Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study to identify improvements along the east-west connections that traverse Wards 1 and 5, address safety concerns, optimize mobility and operations, and improve efficiency for all modes along the corridor.
In 2016, DDOT will work with members of the community and key stakeholders to evaluate and develop a range of physical and operational improvements to enhance multimodal connectivity, mobility and safety in the area. The final plan will include recommendations for short- and long-term improvements. The Crosstown Multimodal Transportation Study is a key project in the 2-Year Action Plan for MoveDC, the District of Columbia's multimodal long-range transportation plan.
