Scott Circle is a traffic circle in the northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., at the junction of Massachusetts Avenue, Rhode Island Avenue, and 16th Street, N.W. N Street stops short of meeting the circle from either direction, and is connected to Rhode Island and Massachusetts avenues through Corregidor Street and Bataan Street.
The through-lanes of 16th Street NW pass under Scott Circle in a $317,000 tunnel that began construction in February 1941 and opened on December 29, 1941. The service lanes of 16th Street intersect the circle.
