Public Scoping - Kennedy Center/Potomac River Pedestrian Access Improvement


The National Park Service (NPS) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in conjunction with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (Kennedy Center), will hold a public scoping meeting to share information and invite comments on the proposed Kennedy Center/Potomac River Pedestrian Access Improvement Project. Under the proposal, FHWA would provide pedestrian access between the Kennedy Center River Terrace and the Potomac Riverfront in Washington, DC; providing a direct link between the Kennedy Center and the Rock Creek and Potomac Parkway Trail, which is administered by the NPS. The purpose of the project is to improve access between the Kennedy Center River Terrace to the Potomac Riverfront. The action is needed because physical barriers and safety concerns currently discourage pedestrian traffic between these two resources.

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the NPS and FHWA are preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to identify alternatives and assess the potential impacts of the proposal. Concurrently, the agencies will conduct consultation under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).

A 30-day public scoping period will be opened from February 14, 2011 to March 14, 2011. During this time, the public is invited to comment on the proposed action, and identify potential issues or concerns for consideration in the EA. Interested parties are also invited to participate in accordance with Section 106 of the NHPA.
