DDoT Holds Open House on Conn Ave Streetscape Design Project on March 31

The District Department of Transportation (DDoT) will be presenting the preliminary construction drawings for the next phase of the Connecticut Avenue Streetscape Project at an Open House on Thursday, March 31.

DDoT says that the project will bring major enhancements to the public space along on Connecticut Avenue from H Street, NW to Dupont Circle, including 17th Street along Farragut Park, and will include a landscaped median from K Street to Jefferson Place.

The Connecticut Avenue streetscape project was developed by DDoT in partnership with the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) board of directors and community stakeholders in 2007 to enhance the public space along Connecticut Avenue from Lafayette Park to Dupont Circle in support of economic development throughout the area.

Members of the business community, residents and other interested stakeholders are invited to attend this Open House to view the preliminary construction drawings, talk to DDoT officials and provide input on the drawings. Attendees are welcome to stop by any time during the Open House hours.
