DDOT Public Space Permits
DDOT's purpose is to enhance the quality of life for District residents and visitors
by ensuring that people, goods, and information move efficiently and safely, with
minimal adverse impacts on residents and the environment. DDOT has management and
oversight responsibility for the use and occupancy of the public space. In compliance
with DC Law, DDOT requires a permit when an individual, group or business intends to occupy, construct and/or
install in or on publicly owned property between the property lines of a street,
park, or other public property. These permits are tracked at the District
and ward level. This
report is updated weekly.
