The final recommendations from the Rock Creek East II Livability Study are now available.
There are some great recommendations, including curb extensions throughout the study area (particularly on Arkansas Avenue NW), pedestrian crossing enhancements, and more traffic calming efforts. We hope these changes will be included in an upcoming budget and implemented as soon as possible.
The purpose of the study was to identify opportunities for safer travel for residents and visitors to the neighborhoods of Petworth, Crestwood, Brightwood Park, and 16th Street Heights. The goals of the study were to enhance the community quality of life through improvements to transportation safety, connections to destinations, green infrastructure, and sustainability. Thanks to all our supporters who asked for safer pedestrian infrastructure east of the Park!
