Public Hearing on The K Street Transitway

The D.C. Department of Transportation will hold a hearing Wednesday to receive public comment on a proposal to transform K Street into a transitway to better accommodate commuter buses.

Two proposals are under consideration. One would create a two-lane, bus-only corridor down the center of the street. The other would provide three lanes for the buses.

The Wednesday night, Oct. 14, hearing will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Carnegie Library, 801 K St. NW. A presentation will be made at 7 p.m.; public testimony will begin at 7:30 pm. Maps will be on display.

The formal comment period is scheduled to end on Oct. 30. Comments may be e-mailed to KStreet.Comments@dc.gov or by mail to:

Faisal Hameed
District Department of Transportation
TPPA, 2000 14th Street, NW, 7th Floor
Washington, DC 20009

And what is their plan to handle the overflow vehicle traffic? Last I checked, K St. carries an awful lot of traffic.
