On Monday, Charles Allen (Ward 6-D) announced that the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will install five new all-way stops in Ward 6.
The five intersections include:
- Tenth Street & South Carolina Avenue SE
- Tenth Street & East Capitol Street
- 14th Street & South Carolina Avenue SE
- 12th & G Streets SE
- Fifth & D Streets SE
The intersections are in addition to five intersections along Eighth Street NE and Eighth Street NW announced by Allen May 1st.
DDOT has let me know it will convert several intersections – long requested by myself & ANCs – into all-way stops:
? 8th & D St NE ?
? 8th & A St SE ?
? 8th & A St NE ?
? 8th & P St NW ?
? 8th & Q St NW ?
More on the way soon. These changes will improve safety!

Allen has been fighting for stop signs at Ward 6 intersections for years, together with ANC Commissioners and residents. All welcomed the announcement.
CM @charlesallen has been pushing DDOT for all-ways stops as the starting point at any intersection and then work from there. Here's video from April in an exchange with DDOT Director: https://t.co/WAMFuFeEBh

Installation will take more than a month, as DDOT is required to give Notice of Intent (NOI) to Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs) 30 days in advance of the change. ANC 6B will consider the installation of all -way stops at Tenth Street & South Carolina Ave SE, 12th & G Streets SE and Tenth & East Capitol Streets at the Tuesday meeting of the Transportation Committee, held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 4 at 700 Penn (700 Pennsylvania Ave. SE).
In a special update sent to her constituents, ANC 6B Transportation Committee Chair Kirsten Oldenburg noted that ANC6B has not yet received the notification of intent for the all-way stops at Fifth & D Streets SE as well as 14th & South Carolina Ave SE.
