The public can learn more about, and comment on the updated design concepts proposed to improve pedestrian safety at this intersection.

From the Tidal Basin to the city’s northeast border with Maryland, the 30-year, $10 billion AWI Program is transforming the shores of the Anacostia River into a world-class waterfront.
