DDOT to Host Final Public Meeting for the Benning Road Streetcar Line Extension Feasibility Study

Community Stakeholders Are Encouraged to Attend and Provide Input on Proposed Streetcar Line Extension



(Washington, DC) – The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is hosting the final public meeting for the Benning Road Streetcar Line Extension Feasibility Study on Tuesday, November 27. The purpose of this meeting is to provide an update on study findings and solicit input from the community.

As part of the study, DDOT is looking into how it may be able to link the H Street/Benning Road streetcar line to the Minnesota Avenue or Benning Road Metro Stations in the future, providing service east of the Anacostia River, in Northeast Washington.

At this meeting DDOT will present the preliminary findings of the technical work that has been performed as well as present the constraints and opportunities of each alternative.  Findings from this study will inform any future environmental work related to the study area.

The meeting will be structured to allow for 30 minutes of materials review and individual discussion with team members prior to a 30-minute presentation.  A one-hour question and answer session will follow the conclusion of the presentation in an open house style and will offer an opportunity for participants to provide additional input at each station.
