North Capitol Street is a street in Washington, D.C. that separates the Northwest and Northeast quadrants of the city. The street begins at D Street due north of the United States Capitol and continues northward 4.5 miles (7.2 km) to Nicholson Street, where it is interrupted by Fort Slocum Park and the Washington Metro Red Line tracks. North Capitol Street continues north of the tracks for a quarter mile where it ends at Eastern Avenue at the border with Maryland.

For the 0.4 miles (0.64 km) south of Hawaii Avenue, North Capitol Street is named Clermont Drive. North Capitol Street is a limited-access road for the 1.1 miles (1.8 km) immediately south of the intersection where Clermont Drive ends.
