Since the Mid City East Plan kick-off in April, we’ve engaged over 1,000 residents through MindMixer, office hours, walking tours, focus groups, workshops, and meetings! Most recently, OP and DDOT hosted engagement activities in June, including a mobile transportation workshop that rotated throughout the study area, and focus area meetings in Bates/Truxton Circle, Hanover, Sursum Corda Area, Eckington, Bloomingdale, and LeDroit Park.

All presentation materials and a summary of public input to date can be found here.

Engage online!

We’d love to meet you in person, but you can also talk with us and other residents online.

DDOT MidCity East Livability Study released

DDOT MidCity East Livability Study

The DDOT MidCity East Livability Study (PDF) addresses the day to day transportation challenges residents, workers and visitors in the several neighborhoods of MidCity East face in meeting their daily needs. The purpose of the plan is to enhance community access and circulation (e.g. walking and bicycling) for residents of all ages and abilities, protect local streets as the “home zone” of neighborhoods and communities; and provide opportunities in the public rights of way to celebrate community identity and place.

Collaboration with local residents, community leaders, and agency partners, focused the study on four primary objectives:

  1. Link the communities across the major arterials.
  2. Reconnect the communities to the larger city.
  3. Reclaim minor streets and corridors from commuters and restore them to community needs and character.
  4. Increase resiliency to flooding and other climactic effects.
