Public meeting on M Street/Southeast-Southwest Freeway transportation study

The District Department of Transportation is planning a public meeting next month to provide an update on the M Street SE/SW Transportation Study.

The study examines the transportation challenges on M Street between 12th Street SE and 12th Street SW as well as from the Southeast-Southwest Freeway south to the Anacostia River. Among other things, the study is looking at how to best allow pedestrian and bicycle traffic to coexist with cars and buses, while also trying to accommodate residents and visitors.

The meeting will take place on Thursday, May 24, between 6:30 and 8 p.m. It will take place at the Capitol Skyline Hotel, located at 10 I (Eye) Street SW. If you have questions or comments, e-mail or call 202-741-8528.

This is the second public meeting this year, following a meeting in January. A draft report is due this summer, followed by a final report and a public meeting this fall, according to the study’s site. The study began last year.
