Streetcar Stops on Benning Road NE!

Monday, November 9th, 2009

Much of H Street NE and Benning Road NE remains a construction zone.  However, work completed to date is starting to reveal what the “Great Streets” version of this arterial will look like.  In addition to streetcar tracks, the new and improved version of this long-neglected corridor will feature wider sidewalks, curb bulb-outs and new lighting.   In addition, work on two streetcar stops at 20th Street & Benning Road NE and at Oklahoma Avenue & Benning Road NE are nearing completion, giving us a good idea of what streetcar stops at the eastern end of the corridor, where streetcars will run in the center lanes, are going to look like.  Here are some photographs (cell phone – please excuse the quality) of the Oklahoma Avenue & Benning Road stop, in front of historic Langston Golf Course.  

note the raised curbs, which are presumably located where the streetcar doors will open. 

 Looking west on Benning from Oklahoma: note the raised curbs, which are presumably located where the streetcar doors will open.

 the streetcar platforms are in the median beyond what will likely be a raised planting bed.  The Orange & Blue Line tracks are in the distance.

 Looking east on Benning towards Oklahoma:  the streetcar platforms are in the median beyond what will likely be a raised planting bed.  The Orange & Blue Line tracks are in the distance.
