The study area covers
the stretch of M from 12th Street, SE to 14th Street, SW, along with the adjacent areas from the Southeast/Southwest Freeway south to the Anacostia River/Washington Channel. DDOT is looking at "how to integrate transit, bicycling and walking with motor vehicle traffic," while also trying to figure out how to balance residents' preferences for how M Street should be configured versus how visitors, workers, and commuters expect it to flow.
The first meeting, back in January
, included an introduction to the study before attendees broke up into small groups to give feedback about the issues they feel need addressing.
According to the web site
, a draft study report is expected this summer, with the final report and a final public meeting coming in the fall.
