Water and K Street

Washington, DC

The K Street/Water Street Connectivity Enhancements Project will connect two of the region’s highest-volume trails, the Capital Crescent Trail and Rock Creek Park Trail, filling a key gap in the regional network and revitalizing the streetscape underneath the Whitehurst Freeway. TDG worked with the client to go beyond creating trail connections for people to pass through the area, employing an urban design strategy to create an attractive destination for locals and tourists. TDG developed elegant design solutions including widened sidewalks and plazas at intersections, a roundabout at the western terminus of the street, and a flush street design that creates a flexible space for event parking and access.
