Recently, DDOT has received concerns about traffic congestion in the area surrounding the intersection of H Street, 3rd Street and Massachusetts Avenue NW.
Although we have modified the timing of traffic signals in the area to address concerns about congestion in the past, the confluence of traffic from large arterial roads and local development has led to gridlock in the area. DDOT traffic engineers are assessing this area again to ascertain whether the traffic signals in the area can be altered to facilitate the smoother flow of traffic.
Please bear with us as we work to decrease congestion in the area, without sacrificing the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers who frequent this well-traveled location. As always, safety is Job #1.
