Proposed Significant changes for 2013

On Thursday, June 13, 2013 the TPB released for public comment the draft 2013 update to the National Capital Region’s Financially Constrained Long-Range Transportation Plan (CLRP). The TPB also released the Air Quality Conformity Assessment.  The 30-day public comment period closed at midnight on Saturday, July 13, 2013. The TPB will be asked to approve the 2013 CLRP and the Air Quality Conformity Assessment at their meeting on July 17, 2013.

Below is a list of significant changes to the CLRP proposed in 2013.  This listing covers changes only to those projects that are considered to be major regional projects, i.e., on interstates, principal arterials and some minor arterials, as well as transit facilities.  A complete list of all planned projects and proposed changes is included in the 2013 CLRP Air Quality Conformity Inputs.

District of Columbia

  1. Lane Reductions and Reconfigurations
Click map for larger image.

DDOT is proposing a number of projects that will make changes to the number and direction of travel lanes across the city, as described in the following segments:

a. I St. NW Peak Period Bus-Only Lanes 13th St. NW to Pennsylvania Ave. NW

I St. NW is one-way, running westbound between 13th St. NW and Pennsylvania Ave. NW. Parking restrictions are in effect on both sides of the street during morning and evening peak periods, allowing for five lanes of traffic. This project proposes to use one of those five lanes as a bus-only lane during the peak periods.  Complete: 2013. Cost: $500,000.

See the CLRP project description form for more information.

b. New Jersey Ave. NW from H St. NW to N St. NW

Reconstruct New Jersey Ave. NW from four lanes, one-way northbound to two lanes in each direction. Complete: 2013. Cost: $500,000

See the CLRP project description form for more information.

c. 17th St. NE/SE Lane Reduction from Benning Ave. NE to Potomac Ave. SE

Reconstruct 17th St. NE/SE from two lanes southbound to one lane southbound. Complete: 2013. Cost $5 million.

See the CLRP project description form for more information.

d. C St. NE from 16th St. NE to Oklahoma Ave. NE

Implement traffic-calming measures by removing one of two travel lanes in each direction.  Complete: 2013. Cost: $4.5 million

  1. Bike Lane Pilot Studies

    Click map for larger image.
    In 2010, DDOT submitted five bike lane projects forinclusion in the CLRP as pilot studies. Two of these projects – 15th St. NW from Constitution Ave. NW to W St. NW and Pennsylvania Ave. NW from 3rd St. NW to 14th St. NW – were completed in 2010. The
    15th St. Bike Lane removed one vehicle lane, while the Pennsylvania Ave. Bike Lanes did not remove any vehicle lanes. This year, DDOT is updating the status of the remaining pilot projects as follows:

a. L St. NW from 11th St. NW to 25th St. NW New Hampshire Ave. NW – completed 2012, one travel lane removed

b. M St. NW from 15th St. NW to 29th St. NW 25th St. NW – complete in 2013, one travel lane removed

c. 9th St. NW from Constitution Ave. NW to K St. NW – project withdrawn
