Streetcar Route to Run Along K ST in MVT

Saturday November 2, 2013

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has announced the completion of the Union Station to Georgetown Premium Transit Alternative Analysis (AA) Study, a comprehensive analysis of alternatives to provide high quality transit in this important east-west corridor.

Alternative 1, which consists of a streetcar system running primarily along K Street, NW, New Jersey Avenue, NW, and H Street was ultimately selected as DDOT’s recommended alternative. This route will bring streetcars directly through the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood. Click here to access the study & maps.

The completion of this study marks an important step in DDOT’s streetcar plans. With the completion of this study, DDOT will now proceed to the environmental review and approval process, which will be followed by design, stop selection and construction.
