(Washington, DC) - The Office of Planning and the District Department of Transportation, in coordination with the National Capitol Planning Commission, have initiated a technical feasibility study of the North Capitol Street Cloverleaf. The purpose of the study is to explore opportunities to realize the potential of the corridor that will lead to long-term improvements in the livability and sustainability of the surrounding area and entire city. The study area includes North Capitol Street from (and including) Hawaii Avenue to Michigan Avenue and Irving Street, NE from Michigan Avenue, NE to Park Place, NW.
Goals of the study include:
- Explore alternative intersection configurations for the cloverleaf at Irving Street;
- Develop strategies to improve the gateway qualities of North Capitol Street by including accessible open spaces, civic spaces, memorials, and enhancing the public streetscapes; and
- Develop recommendations for improving safety, connectivity and transportation operations
Please attend the community workshop to help develop alternative scenarios and design options for the cloverleaf interchange at Irving Street and North Capitol Street.
