Public meeting to discuss improving 17th and 19th streets

The District Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting next week to discuss improving two roadways near RFK Stadium.

The meeting will discuss changes meant to make it safer for drivers and pedestrians to traverse 17th and 19th streets between Benning Road NE and Potomac Avenue SE.

These stretches run between Kingman Park in Northeast Washington and the Congressional Cemetery in Southeast Washington. The segment of 19th Street includes the Stadium-Armory Metro stop.

DDOT is looking into potential improvements including new signs, traffic signal upgrades and sidewalk ramps. These improvements were listed in a 2006 study, and DDOT is trying to see which fixes can be made.

The meeting will be held on Monday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Friendship Public Charter School (725 19th Street NE). It’s accessible via the X1, X2 and X3 bus routes.

This is the first in a series of meetings meant to share information and gather input, according to DDOT.
