The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host two public meetings to discuss the Benning Road Bridges and Transportation Improvements Project. At the meetings, DDOT will provide an update on the project, present final design materials, and outline next steps.

The DDOT project seeks to address infrastructure needs and provide better transit connections along approximately two miles of Benning Road NE from Oklahoma Avenue NE to East Capitol Street SE.

 Goals of the Project Include:

  • Enhancing safety and operations along the corridor and at key intersections
  • Improving transportation infrastructure conditions
  • Rehabilitating roadways and bridges that cross the Anacostia River, DC-295, and CSX freight rail tracks
  • Enhancing and installing pedestrian and bicycle facilities
  • Extending streetcar transit service to the Benning Road Metrorail station on a center-running alignment

DDOT produced the final designs for the project following the approval of the Benning Road and Bridges Transportation Improvements Environmental Assessment (November 2020).

Two meetings are being held for the public’s convenience; they will cover the same content.

Tuesday, Dec. 14 from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. and Wednesday, Dec. 15, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

For more information about the meetings, please contact Project Manager Emnete Banko at (202) 302-6892 or emnete.banko@dc.gov. For more information about the project, visit BenningProject.com.
