On Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 6:30 p.m, two District Department of Transportation (DDOT) planning officials will join us on a WebEx meeting to discuss the planning and environmental process on Capitol Hill, with a focus on the DDOT’s planning and implementation of its transportation corridor revitalization projects on Pennsylvania and Maryland Avenue that the speakers are involved in.

They will address the following factors: how the planning process was initiated; how the community/neighborhood was involved; and historic/preservation factors that were considered.  The speakers also will outline whom they worked with at the Office of Planning and how they factored in the different transportation needs (pedestrians, bikes, and buses included).  They will discuss current progress on the projects and answer questions.

George Branyan, Active Transportation Branch Manager in DDOT’s Planning and Sustainability Division, will discuss his experiences with the planning and implementation of the overhaul of Pennsylvania Ave. SE, to include various modes of transportation, and also can discuss the initial phases of the Maryland Ave. NE transportation corridor project.

Abdullahi Mohamed, Supervisor Civil Engineer in DDOT’s Infrastructure Project Management Division, will provide updates on the Maryland Ave. project.

The meeting is presented by the Capitol Hill Restoration Society (CHRS). A CHRS Membership Meeting directly preceding the talk will be brief in order to maximize time for substantive discussion during this virtual program.

There is no charge, and everyone is welcome to attend.
