Anacostia Waterfront Initiative

Undeland Management led public outreach initiatives for the District of Columbia Department of Transportation’s (DDOT) Anacostia Waterfront Initiative (AWI) – a 30-year, $10 billion program to transform the shores of the Anacostia River into a sustainable and multi-modal world-class waterfront.

We helped DDOT connect with residents and managed stakeholder relations on AWI’s collection of high-profile transportation projects, including the 28-mile Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, the replacement of the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge and improvements to South Capitol Street.

Our scope of services included creation of fact sheets and display boards, execution of community outreach through public meetings and events, development and maintenance of an informative website, media relations support and publication of a quarterly newsletter.
