R Street Streetscape Improvements


Since the inception of the R Street Corridor Master Plan, CADA has been leading the way to implement the mixed-use, transit-oriented development vision of R Street.  CADA’s most significant contribution to the corridor to support such development has been the total reconstruction of the R Street Streetscape between 10th and 18th Streets. Completed in 3 phases, CADA  helped design and fund streetscape improvements to provide a safer and more pleasurable experience for pedestrians on R Street.

The R Street Streetscape Improvements included:

  • New pedestrian walkways with 4 inch curbs
  • A new concrete roadway surface
  • Designated on-street parking
  • Improved pedestrian crossings
  • Unique pedestrian street lighting and fixtures
  • Preservation of historic elements (e.g., rail line, cobblestones)
  • New drainage and water line systems
  • ADA-compliant accessibility
  • Street trees with ornamental Tree Grates
  • Benches
  • Art Pieces
  • Bike Racks
  • Monument signs

Phase I Improvements from 10th to 13th Streets were completed in  2012

Phase II Improvements from 16th to 18th Streets were completed in 2015

Phase III Improvements from 13th to 16th Streets were completed in 2018
