DDOT Meeting To Focus on Maryland Avenue Pedestrian Safety

The District of Columbia Department of Transportation has scheduled a meeting this Saturday to seek the public's input into improving pedestrial safety at Maryland Avenue.  The Maryland Avenue safety project is seeking input from the public for ways to improve the area, and is considering enhanced pedestrian crossings, accessible bus stops, updated traffic signal timing and traffic calming. The Department is seekling feedback  from pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers regarding safety concerns.

As reported here in the past, pedestrian safety continues to be a growing concern for local authorities in the District of Columbia area, as pedestrian injuries and fatalaties seem to be increasing.  Out of 52 metropolitan areas across the United States The Surface Transportation Policy Partnership studied pedestrian safety in 52 metropolitan areas in the United States.  The study rated Baltimore as the 29th most dangerous city for pedestrian safety, and rated Washington D. C. as the 32nd most dangerous city for pedestrian safety in the United States.
