Community Meeting w/ DDOT re: Maryland Ave Pedestrian Safety Project, incl 7th & 10th St intersections Wed. 5/21 at NE Library

Are you concerned about safety at the intersection of 7th/D/Maryland Ave (by the Northeast Library)? About the intersection of 10th/Maryland (by SWS at Goding and Sherwood Rec)? Or the Maryland Ave corridor as a whole? Do you remember a multiyear planning process that produced consensus plans that were supposed to be implemented last fall, but that haven't gone anywhere?  Then this meeting is for you.

Come learn about current plans for Maryland Avenue Pedestrian Safety Improvements
May 21, 6:30-8:00 pm at the NE Library (7th & Maryland) Lower Level

Agenda to include: 
* George Branyan, Pedestrian Program Coordinator at the DC Department of Transportation, will present modified plans for changes along Maryland Avenue 
* Q&A with neighbors
* Informal discussion with ANC reps and other DC policymakers 

Since 2010, the DC Department of Transportation (DDOT) has been considering a project to make Maryland Avenue safer for pedestrians and cars, especially at the intersections of Maryland/7th/D and Maryland/10th. 

DDOT identified the preferred design 2 ½ years ago, but it never implemented that design.  It now is considering a new scaled-back plan.  The community will learn about this scaled-back plan at the May 21 meeting.
