The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is undertaking a planning study of the western portion of downtown to improve east-west travel for cyclists, pedestrians, and buses. The study area includes:

  • Pennsylvania Avenue NW between 17th Street and Washington Circle; and
  • H and I Streets NW between New York Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue

Downtown West DC - Study Area Map

The Downtown West Transportation Planning Study builds upon the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority and DDOT’s 2013 H/I Street Bus Improvements Technical Report. moveDC, the District’s multimodal transportation plan, identified Pennsylvania Avenue NW as a priority cycle track corridor and H Street NW as a priority high-capacity transit corridor.
