The Week Ahead…

Monday, October 19

ANC 6A Transportation and Public Space Committee holds a virtual meeting at 7:00pm. 

For information on joining the meeting, go here:

Among items on the draft agenda:

  • Announcement of opportunity for community input on moveDC, the District’s long-range transportation plan.
  • Consideration of additional pedestrian/traffic safety issues, as suggested by commissioners and community members (see list at end of document) – this will be taken out of order or postponed to allow time for adequate discussion of time-sensitive new business items.
  • Public space application at 205 15th Street, NE, for exception from fence requirement and an 8×10 ft. accessory building in public space.
  • Presentation, by Marcy Bernbaum of the Downtown DC Public Restroom Colleagues, on the opportunity for ANCs to suggest pilot locations for public restrooms pursuant to the Public Restroom Facilities Installation and Promotion Act of 2018. Consideration of proposing a pilot site on the H Street corridor. [link to basic information provided by People for Fairness Coalition (PFC):

Additional Pedestrian/Traffic Safety Discussion/Consideration List

  • Making Acute Angle Intersections Safer – Drivers make fast turns from diagonal streets (NC/TN/MD) onto letter/number streets. Requesting raised crosswalks/speed humps/bulbouts/traffic calming
  • Intersection of A Street and North Carolina Avenue NE – most hazardous aspect is traffic traveling east on North Carolina Avenue and turning in on A Street.
  • 1100 and 1200 block of F Street, NE
  • 1300 block of G Street NE, south of Maryland Avenue, NE
  • 200 block of 9th Street NE traffic calming. Look for message from DDOT –Mike
  • Traffic on the 200 block of 9th Street NE; residents believe that the timing of the lights makes this a faster – and therefore preferred route over 8th Street. Request adjusting the lights ((rather than speed humps) due to noise and vibration.
  • Concerns that discouraging truck traffic on 10th and 12th Streets will increase such traffic on 11th Street, NE.
