Who we are these people? Gabriela Vega – Transportation Planner, DDOT/PPSA George Branyan – Pedestrian Program Coordinator, DDOT/PPSA Trey Dickerson – Civil Engineer, DDOT/IPMA DDOT – District Department of Transportation PPSA – Policy Planning and sustainability Administration IPMA – Infrastructure Project Management Administration
1.1 Connecticut Ave. and Porter St. CCC - Curb Cuts from gas station create conflicts between pedestrians and Vehicles. DDOT – work with gas station owner to close curb cut on Connecticut Avenue and install curb extension to minimize turning speed
2. Connecticut Ave. and Porter St. CCC – Five leg intersection is confusing for pedestrian activity and vehicles get stuck in middle of intersection DDOT – major capital improvement project that involves design, engineering, and a budget of 4-6 million. DDOT will also investigate the No Left turn regulation on NB Conn Ave.
3. Porter and Quebec Streets CCC – Traffic signal needed for vehicles exiting gas station DDOT – Traffic signal may not solve problem of vehicles stuck in middle of the box. Extending the median to prohibit vehicles from turning left is option but there is no location where they could turn to travel westbound on Porter St.
3. Porter and Quebec Streets CCC - Pedestrians and vehicles conflict within the gas station area when pedestrians cross through the gas station DDOT - Unfortunately DDOT cannot control pedestrian and vehicle conflict at this location
4. Connecticut Ave. and Ordway St. CCC - Service Road Exit adds danger and confusion DDOT -Unfortunately DDOT cannot control pedestrian and vehicle conflict at this location
5. Connecticut Ave. and Ordway St. CCC – northbound vehicles turning eastbound from Connecticut Avenue are unaware of pedestrians crossing Ordway St. DDOT – DDOT can install regulatory signs, will align signal heads appropriately and look into re-timing entire intersection to lower confusion
6. Connecticut Avenue between Ordway and Macomb CCC – Mid-block pedestrian crossings because of length of block DDOT – Install hawk signal and associated concrete work
7. Connecticut Avenue @ Macomb and Ordway Streets CCC – Vehicles trying to enter/exit service road get stuck on Connecticut Avenue or get stuck in the crosswalk DDOT – Check the signal timing and further observations
8. Connecticut Ave. and Newark St. CCC – Low lighting, low visibility for pedestrians crossing Newark DDOT – check light intensity of the corridor and check if there are bulbs that need to be replaced
9 and 10. Connecticut Ave. and Newark St. CCC – Low yield to pedestrians crossing Newark, and from drivers Entering Newark from northbound Connecticut Avenue. DDOT – install quick curb and flex posts to prevent a slip lane effect from eastbound Newark Street. Prohibit northbound traffic on Connecticut Avenue from entering Newark Streets CCC – angle of the intersection is not conducive to safety for peds
11. Connecticut Ave. Service Road CCC – Very narrow sidewalk (on both sides of service road) DDOT – sidewalks cannot be expanded unless segment is fully reconstructed
12. Connecticut Ave. Service Road CCC – Vehicles exiting service road should have right turn only movements DDOT – not practical, it would generate other problems along Ordway Street
13. Connecticut Ave. Service Road CCC – Vehicles exiting service road during red cycles DDOT – re-install No Turn on Red sign at location where drivers cannot miss it
14. Connecticut Ave. between Macomb and Porter Streets CCC – Excessive speeds and red light running DDOT – enforcement, red light camera – program by MPD
15 – 17. Connecticut Ave. between Macomb and Porter Streets CCC – Low lighting, replace existing cobra lights DDOT – DDOT can replace arm and light fixture and install new light post where there is not enough light intensity for a new light. Existing light posts can be painted
18. Connecticut Ave. between Macomb and Porter Streets CCC – comprehensive traffic study and preliminary design and engineering DDOT – DDOT recommends traffic study that provides residents with options for new streetscape design addressing safety and livability issues that cannot be covered by this grant
19. Connecticut Ave. between Macomb and Porter Streets CCC – Lack of historic place making DDOT – Install benches, historic signs, and tree inventory
