The work is part of the last phase of streetscape improvements on R Street. The project will enhance the streets and sidewalks along the R Street corridor between 13th to 16th Street and unify the two previous streetscape projects between 10th and 13th and 16thand 18th Streets.

Construction began early in October and is scheduled to be completed in early summer 2018. Work will be done in phases to allow businesses to remain open during construction. The overall enhancements will include wider sidewalks, improved pedestrian crossings, tree canopies, street lighting, and upgraded storm drainage system. The project is an integral part in the continued revitalization of the R Street Corridor.
