M

STREET SE/SW
TRANSPORTATION STUDY

Project Overview
The M Street SE/SW Transportation Study identified
existing and future transportation challenges and ways
to address them within a roughly 1.7-square-mile area
along M Street SE/ SW and the Southwest waterfront
from 12th Street SE to 14th Street SW and from the
Southwest/Southeast Freeway south to the Anacostia
River/Washington Channel.

Milestones

The study analyzed how to integrate transit, bicycling


and walking with motor vehicle traffic in order to best
serve neighborhoods in this burgeoning section of the
city. In addition, the study sought ways to most safely
and effectively balance the travel needs of residents
with those of visitors and workers who will be drawn to
new retail and mixed use development planned for the
area. Movement of goods, parking and transportation
facilities that provide access to all of the new amenities
coming to the M Street corridor also were considered.

Key Project Elements


Among the factors evaluated were existing and
forecasted transportation conditions, planned land
uses and possible transportation enhancements to:
improve safety for drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists;
increase mobility;
provide better local connections to the regional
network; and
support planned development.

Creating a Successful Transportation
System
The District Department of Transportations mission is
to develop and maintain a cohesive, sustainable
transportation system that delivers safe, affordable,
and convenient ways to move people and goods
while protecting and enhancing the natural,
environmental and cultural resources of the District.
Key to achieving this mission within the study area was
designing streets to:

provide a balance in physical space and time for all


modes; and
complement and support diverse adjacent land uses
and edge conditions.

Public Involvement
Three public meetings in 2012 (noted in the
Milestones) provided residents, businesses and other
stakeholders with opportunities to comment and stay
informed. The meetings were held in January, May and
September 2012. The study was launched in November
2011 and a final report was published in December
2012. During 2013, DDOT has been conducting a
subsequent special event transportation study to
augment the final M Street Study report in anticipation
of beginning a formal National Environmental Policy
Act (NEPA) process in 2014.
