DDOT Headquarters Moving to 55 M Street, SE 
(Washington, D.C.) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will be moving its headquarters to 55 M Street, SE over the next two months.  The new office building is LEED certified and will house DDOT’s administrative offices and approximately 450 staff members. 
“The move is one strategic example of what we are doing as an agency to decrease our ecological footprint,” said Director Bellamy, “it will also make us a more efficient agency and will benefit our customers, the residents of the District of Columbia, because for the first time since the department was created, most of our offices will be housed under one roof.”  
DDOT’s Infrastructure Project Management Administration is scheduled to move first on April 22.  The Office of the Director, Policy Planning and Sustainability Administration, Progressive Transportation Services Administration, Transportation Operations Administration and the Urban Forestry Administration will follow and be in the new facility by mid May. 
The DDOT offices for the School Transit Subsidiary Program and public space permits will remain at their current locations.  The School Transit Subsidy Program will remain in the Reeves Center at 2000 14th Street, NW, and the Permitting Center will remain at 1100 4th Street, SW. 
Effective Monday, May 23, 2011 DDOT’s new mailing address will be 55 M Street, SE, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20003.  Office fax and telephone numbers will remain the same.   
Those visiting the new office will be required to sign-in at the main reception desk located on the 4th Floor to gain access to DDOT offices.  The entrance to the onsite visitor parking garage is located on Cushing Place south of M Street. 
The new office is accessible via the Navy Yard Metro station on the Green Line, and is directly above the station entrance at M and Half Streets.
DDOT’s main administrative office is currently located at 2000 14th Street, NW, 6th Floor and may be reached at (202) 673-6813.  For more information about DDOT visit http://ddot.dc.gov.
