Creating More Walkable Urban Places in Washington, D.C.

Play associated audio

After decades of urban flight, Washington, D.C.'s population is on the rise.  Young single professionals and families who once opted for suburban life are now choosing the city instead.  And as they do so, city planners are trying to ensure that the District becomes a more walkable, liveable city in the process.

 In a special four-part series, transportation reporter Martin Di Caro traveled across Washington, D.C. and nearby Arlington, Va. to document how formerly run-down neighborhoods are being transformed into "walk-ups" - walkable urban places with high-end grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping.
