Awesome Typos Vol. 17 – North-South Corridor Includes Potworth


Thanks to [email protected] for tweeting us the photo:

“Really, @DDOTDC “Potworth”? What are you trying to say?!?”

Ah too good.

This comes from – DDOT to host public meetings for North-South Corridor Planning Study:

“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT)is initiating a planning study to examine opportunities for public transportation improvements in the North-South corridor through the District of Columbia and will host the first round of public meetings starting in November.

The study area is focused on a 9-mile, north-south corridor that connects the Takoma/Silver Spring area to the Buzzard Point/Southwest Waterfront area. The study area extends east-west from about 16th Street on the west to approximately one-quarter mile east of Georgia Avenue.

Over the next year, DDOT will be working in collaboration with the community, area businesses, government agencies, and other stakeholders to identify and evaluate street-level, high quality transit service that offers better reliability and greater capacity than existing bus operations.

Throughout the study, DDOT will host three sets of meetings located in the north, central, and south areas of the corridor to receive input on possible alignments. These meetings will include an overview presentation and the opportunity for residents to provide their input. The same information will be presented at all four meetings.

    If you look at the complete photo, there’s apparently also a Gallary Place.

    They must know something that we don’t.

  • Looks like someone read that alarmist “Potsmokers at Petworth” thread from a while back on PoPville .

  • Q: What’s potworth?

    A: About $200 an ounce (ba-dum-ba)

    Thanks, I’m here all week; tip your waiters.

  • wow, that whole ddot page is TERRIBLE. Whoever wrote/edited it should be fired. They don’t list quadrants for 3 of the 4 meetings, and it includes phrases like “in generally bound by 14th Street and 5th Street NW”

    with that said, I’m going to try and go to one of the meetings, so thanks for publicizing!

    This has gotta be one of the stupidest things to come out of Harriet Tregoning’s shop. You’re gonna narrow down the already overcrowded 9th St corridor with a trolley without widening it? IF a trolley and more bike lanes are a good idea (and that is a big if) why not put them on 5th street… or better widen 9th while you are at it? Oh yea, that is because automobiles, even electric and hybrids are inconsistent with her 40 year plan. Who knows what is going to happen in 30, 40 years? Why not plan to make life better for those who live here today and tomorrow, instead of for those yet unborn whose desires you can’t predict?

      Solid point! Why plan for the future using data and studies and experts when the future hasn’t even happened yet? I say let’s live in the now. Screw those uppity future-dwellers with their jet packs and freeze-dried ice cream sandwiches. Now which way to potsworth?
