Gorove/Slade served as the transportation consultants for the project. This work included preparing a transportation management plan (TMP) that helped guide overall transportation strategy of the site and give input to the stadium’s architects. Working with the architect and its team, Gorove/Slade prepared the necessary documentation and analysis needed for the stadium’s Planned Unit Development (PUD) application to the DC Zoning Commission. Gorove/Slade helped DC United work with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) to help their review of the project’s transportation aspects. Gorove/Slade testified at the Zoning Commission on behalf of the team and helped gain final approvals for the stadium.
