Environmental Assessment

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have released for public comment the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the H Street Bridge NE Replacement. The purpose of the Project is to replace the H Street Bridge NE (Hopscotch Bridge) between North Capitol Street and Third Street, NE, Washington, DC, to best match its current configuration and operations for pedestrian, vehicle, bus, and streetcar transit while not precluding the needs of adjacent planned projects. The bridge is proposed to be replaced to address deficiencies in the bridge deck, bridge superstructure, and bridge substructure.

The EA was prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and evaluates the proposed replacement and documents alternatives considered, their potential impacts and strategies to mitigate them.
