Five years ago, we introduced the concept design for the NW Kennedy Green Street, DC Water’s pilot green infrastructure streetscape project. This two-block commercial green street has now been constructed. A landscape architecture firm, engineering firm, and water utility authority will reflect on the design/construction lessons learned for this showcase project.
Learn about the innovative green infrastructure design solutions implemented along the NW Kennedy Green Street project, including overcoming the obstacles to get these elements approved and built.
Understand the project’s stormwater management performance, from pre-construction to post-construction continuous flow monitoring, and how this performance relates to the larger DC Water Clean River Project goals.
Discover the lessons learned within the concept design, final design, construction administration, and post-construction phases of the project.
Learn how the NW Kennedy Green Street project helps provide multiple benefits beyond stormwater management and creates a truly complete street.
