Project Overview
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is developing a concept design for pedestrian, streetscape, and multimodal safety and access improvements in the area surrounding the east entrance of the Tenleytown-AU Metrorail Station.

Beginning with specific recommendations from a 2016 WMATA study, DDOT will refine the prior concepts and work with community and agency stakeholders to review project objectives and seek feedback on proposed design elements.

DDOT is evaluating concepts for several key elements:

• Enhanced pedestrian spaces,
• Better sidewalk design,
• Improved intersection geometry,
• High-visibility crosswalks,
• Improved bus shelters and bus layover space,
• Streetscape and landscaping,
• Bicycle infrastructure,
• Safer curb cuts and driveways, and
• Improved public spaces.
Project Area
The project area focuses on the area surrounding the east entrance of the Tenleytown-AU Metrorail Station, including 40th Street and Fort Drive NW, between Albemarle and Chesapeake Streets.

Advancing the Plan for Improved Public Space
  • WMATA previously examined station access improvements that can accommodate all modes of transportation for both current and future access needs.
  • A 2016 report from WMATA proposed a series of improvements and interventions to improve safety and access in the area. These are shown in the graphic below.
  • DDOT will use this concept as a starting point for advancing the future design for this area.
