What is Open Streets?

Open Streets events seek to temporarily close roadways to vehicles to provide safe spaces for walking, biking, skating, and other social activities. Our events help users reimagine public space to prioritize people over cars, and promote local economic development. The District of Columbia began celebrating Open Streets in 2019 at the inaugural event on Georgia Avenue. With the success of the first Open Streets event, DDOT plans to expand the program to every ward in the District!
