March 18, 2022 Chairperson Amber Gove ANC 6A 1351 A St. NE Washington, DC 20002 email: 6A04@anc.dc.gov NOI# 22-95 PSD 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.
