AWI Master Plan
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is currently working to transform the area's transportation infrastructure in its role in the larger Anacostia Waterfront Initiative with the goal of improving access for residents, commuters, and visitors while enhancing the environmental quality of the region. DDOT’s objective is to reconnect communities through the replacement of outdated and deteriorating facilities with innovative infrastructure solutions.
To accomplish these aims, DDOT has developed the AWI Transportation Master Plan (Master Plan). The Master Plan was initiated by DDOT to organize the studies and projects underway in the AWI study area into a comprehensive program. It describes DDOT’s project development process for implementing the AWI vision and details of each project’s current status, as well as a snapshot of the status of DDOT’s AWI transportation program as a whole.
The Master Plan presents the current implementation schedule as of publication in 2014. Given the realities of the project development process, as well as political and funding cycles, this program will change over time. However, the Master Plan is intended to provide more than a set of projects. It is also intended to provide goals and a set of criteria that will remain applicable as circumstances affecting the set of projects change.
