DC is on the move.
Between bikes, walking, buses, trains, cars, trucks, and taxis; streets and highways; tunnels and bridges; local and commuter traffic, a lot happens to moveDC. We're excited to bring you moveDC—DDOT's initiative to develop a coordinated, multimodal long range transportation plan, addressing all modes of transportation in the District.
The entire transportation network of the District of Columbia, in addition to important regional connections, will be considered during the moveDC plan. Each mode of transportation will be evaluated and considered as a part of the development of the multimodal transportation plan.
- Planning process formally kicked off on January 15, 2013
- Draft plan is anticipated by late 2013
- DDOT is the lead agency for the planning process
- DDOT will coordinate with agencies and advocacy groups in the development of the plan
- Plan is Districtwide in scope and will consider all modes of transportation in a coordinated manner
- Plan will satisfy the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requirements for statewide long range transportation plans and will be the long range vision for transportation in DC
- There will be numerous opportunities for people to get involved—social media, workshops, webcasts, regular working group meetings, and online activities
- Our moveDC Idea Exchange was held on February 9th.
- The first set of public meetings, Ideas that Build the Plan, was held in April. The input we received will help build the foundation of the plan. Information collected included insight into neighborhood and citywide issues and opportunities as well as people's interests in accessibility, bicycling, driving, transit, environmental quality, and other important topics.
DDOT's existing transportation plans and plans from other District agencies and regional organizations will be used as inputs. The implementation-based plan will guide strategic investments—for bicycles, pedestrians, vehicles, and transit—in the city's transportation system for the next 25 years and beyond. See the Plan Elements section below for more information about the components that will make up the final plan.
