From DDOT:

“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host a public meeting for the Klingle Valley Trail Project in Ward 3 on Thursday, August 20, from 6:30 pm to 8 pm. The project will convert Klingle Road NW between Cortland Place and Porter Street into a pedestrian and bicycle trail using green infrastructure components such as permeable pavement and bioretention ponds. The project will also restore eroded segments of Klingle Creek and rebuild drainage structures along the trail. At this meeting DDOT will review the project timeline, construction phasing, and key design components based on feedback previously gathered from community stakeholders.

Klingle Road NW was closed between Cortland Place NW and Porter Street NW following a severe flood event in 1991. The Klingle Valley Trail will provide safe public access to this section of Rock Creek Park for the first time in 25 years.

A reader sends from Cleveland Park. We spoke about Car2Go and “a breach of residential etiquette?” in Shepherd Park back in July of last year. As best I can tell this note says:

“Please do not Block Park in front of my house. I am expecting people from several embassies. Thanks.”

Does Car2Go and/or District government need to do some better outreach explaining how it works?

Pat, hired at New Belgium in 2001 and a former homebrew store owner from South Carolina, and moderators John Fleury of DCist & Aaron Morrisey of DC Beer will field questions from the audience on topics ranging from brewing in small spaces to the production of sour and hoppy beers. On tap will be the rarely seen on the East Coast Sunshine Wheat, the venerable Fat Tire, Summer seasonal Snapshot Wheat, easy drinking Slow Ride Session IPA, the sour brown behemoth La Folie, hoppy Ranger IPA, and a little bit of both of the last two in the form of Hop Tart.
