US Senate Parking Lot Study

Location: Washington, D.C. Client: United States Senate

JMT performed a parking study to assist the Senate Parking Office in creating additional parking for Senate permit holders, and to improve accessibility to and egress from street and lot parking on the Capitol grounds.

JMT performed a parking study to assist the Senate Parking Office in creating additional parking for Senate permit holders, and to improve accessibility to and egress from street and lot parking on the Capitol grounds.

A key element of this project was to identify how to improve an existing permit parking system to maximize parking space utilization and create a more balanced system.  JMT was able to accomplish this by investigating and inventorying the existing parking availability in the study area and identifying options for improvements that were needed to the existing parking arrangements.  Areas studied included:

  • Louisiana Avenue between Columbus Circle and Constitution Avenue
  • D Street Between New Jersey Avenue and First Street NE
  • Massachusetts Avenue Between Columbus Circle and Second Street NE
  • First Street NW between Louisiana Ave and Pennsylvania Ave
  • First Street NE between Columbus Circle and Constitution Avenue
  • Constitution Avenue between First Street NW and Delaware Avenue

JMT reviewed parking management to develop recommendations to maximize on-street parking facilities.  JMT professionals provided uniform traffic control devices and identified other roadway/traffic improvements in the project area based on U.S. Senate and District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT) standards. Recommendations were provided based on two field parking studies as well as field investigations to identify any deficiencies in infrastructure not meeting Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards.

JMT developed a range of short-term and long-term solutions for each segment of roadway aimed at maximizing the number of potential parking spaces and enhancing user safety, as well as a prioritized implementation plan. JMT then prepared and provided cost estimates based on engineering improvements, landscaping, utilities, and pedestrian facility improvements.
