East Capitol Street
Welcome New & Updates
Welcome to the East Capitol Street Pedestrian Safety Corridor Project Website. Public Meeting #2
In 2009, the District of Columbia developed its first Pedestrian Master Plan. The primary goals of the Pedestrian Master Plan were to reduce the number of pedestrian related fatalities and injuries and to increase pedestrian activity by making walking a comfortable and accessible mode of travel throughout all parts of the District. The Pedestrian Master Plan recommended pedestrian safety and access improvements on multiple corridors in the city. In 2010, City Council identified initial funding for implementing the 2009 DDOT Pedestrian Master Plan on several important corridors in the District, including East Capitol Street, NE, that have a history of hazardous conditions for pedestrian travel. February 2013
Date to be determined
This project focuses on improving safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit users along East Capitol Street. The study corridor is East Capitol Street, NE between Stoddert Place, SE and Southern Avenue, NE. Concerns of neighbourhood residents and others that travel the corridor will be gathered through public meetings as well as a comment form, both found on this website. This information will be combined with traffic condition analyses and field survey to generate and evaluate safety improvements and design alternatives for East Capitol Street.
This project will culminate with 30% Preliminary Design Plans incorporating improvements such as enhanced pedestrian crossings, accessible bus stops, geometric adjustments that support intersection safety, updates to traffic signal timing and traffic calming.
