DDOT to Repave Many Streets, Sidewalks This Year; Are There Any Near You?

-

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is planning to start a repaving program in the coming weeks, and released a map showing which streets, roads, alleys, and sidewalks are included.

As part of the program, Mayor Muriel Bowser‘s administration has committed to “eliminating all poor quality roads in the District by 2024,” according to a release by DDOT.

The program is based on the Department’s assessments of road quality, as well as requests from the community. The streets that are in greatest need and highest priority to the community will receive improvements first.

“Keeping our infrastructure in a state of good repair is critical to all the other work that we do as a department to keep the traveling public safe,” Everett Lott, Interim Director at DDOT, said in a statement on March 17. “This paving season, we look forward to continuing to build on the great progress we have made during the Bowser Administration.”

DDOT provides street maintenance and rehabilitation every year, from spring through the fall. The Department places notices and no parking signs on affected streets 72 hours ahead of the start of the repaving work.

Around 88 miles of roads, 29 miles of sidewalks and 109 alleys are planned to be repaved and fixed throughout 2021.
