The District Department of Transportation is holding a public meeting to discuss plans to replace three aging pedestrian bridges in Washington with a pair of new bridges.

The current bridges, which carry people over Kenilworth Avenue/DC-295, are on a half-mile stretch between Nannie Helen Burroughs and Eastern avenues in Northeast Washington.

They are near Lane Place, Nash Street and Douglas Street. The bridges connect the land on the eastern and western sides of Kenilworth Avenue just south of the D.C./Maryland border.

At the public meeting, DDOT will discuss the potential timetable for construction and other details.

The meeting will be held in the Deanwood Recreation Center’s Multipurpose Room 1 (1350 49th St. NE) Aug. 30 from 6 to 8 p.m. If you have questions about the meeting, contact John Gomes at or call 202-907-9475.
