DDOT is the lead agency for all regional and federal emergency transportation coordination and activities that impact the District of Columbia.

DDOT shall balance and mitigate security requirements against the daily mobility, efficiency, and quality of life concerns of District residents and visitors, and the potential for negative economic, environmental, and historic impacts.

DDOT shall work closely with federal agencies to find alternative security solutions and to avoid street closings to the greatest possible extent. Trade-offs associated with potential street closures or changes to transportation access must be adequately assessed.

DDOT shall provide alternative routes and modes of travel ("redundancies") across the District to promote the security of District residents and visitors and reduce the effects of non-routine incidents.
