DDOT is looking to develop solutions that will address all users of this important corridor to create a more holistic design that will transform all of New York Avenue. Recent efforts by both the District and private development have improved portions of the streetscape for New York Avenue. This project study will identify improvements to beautify New York Avenue from Florida Avenue to Bladensburg Road. The project will study improvements to public space in the corridor, including curb, gutter, streetlights, plantings, trees, benches, public art and other public space improvements.
The project will study and develop concepts and designs to improve safety and quality of life for people who use New York Avenue, including a new multi-use trail connecting the National Arboretum and Metropolitan Branch Trail, and future transit services throughout the corridor.
The project limits extend along New York Avenue NE from Florida Avenue to Bladensburg Road NE as shown below in the project map.
