Re: Roadway Pattern Modification of North Carolina Ave NE from 13th NE to 14th Street NE
Dear Chairperson Gove,
Pursuant to the “Administrative Procedure Amendment Act of 2000” D.C. LAW 13-249 (48 DCR
3491 April 20, 2001), the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is required to give a
written notice of our intent (NOI) to modify traffic and/or parking requirements. This letter is being
forwarded to you for the purpose of notification and solicitation of comments on our intent to
implement the following in your jurisdiction:
DDOT proposes to modify the roadway pattern for North Carolina Avenue to a one-way westbound
pattern with protected bike lanes, modified geometry at the 13th and 14th Street intersections,
installing a raised mid-block crosswalk, and modifying parking to be outside planned bike lanes in
the configuration shown on the attached plans. Five parking spaces will be added along 13th Street,
and five spaces will be removed along North Carolina Ave in order to include the raised crossing
and adjust the intersection geometries.
DDOT’s reasoning for this change is to match the protected bike lanes and roadway changes
currently being installed on the C Street NE project, to improve overall neighborhood safety in
accordance with our mandate to eliminate fatal crashes by 2024, and to advance the citywide goal
to plan and build a network of protected bike facilities.
All comments on this subject matter must be filed in writing by May 2nd, 2022 (thirty business days
after the date of this notice), with the District Department of Transportation, Transportation
Operations Administration, 250 M Street, S.E. Washington, D.C. 20003. If you would like to check
the status of this Notice of Intent (NOI), please visit DDOT’s website at If you are having any trouble accessing
the NOI site or are unable to do so, please contact the DDOT Customer Service Clearinghouse at
