Barracks Row Main Street Revisits Eastern Market Metro Park

Pennsylvania Avenue Area Between 7th and 9th Streets SE
Up For Improvement

In the summer of 2013 Barracks Row Main Street (BRMS) initiated a new design study and transportation management plan to improve the public space along Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, between 7th and 9th Streets, including the area around the Eastern Market Metro Station. The overall goal of the Park/Plaza design study was to renew and upgrade, both functionally and aesthetically, the publicly owned land in the 700 and 800 blocks of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Eight community meetings, four Task Force meetings, two alternate master plans, and thousands of community comments later we are pleased to present the final master plan. Click here to see the presentation delivered at two recent community meetings, which detail the proposed changes for each of the six parcels of land.

We are very pleased with the results and hope you are too. Please visit our blog here to send any comments or responses to the plan.
