From the Mayor’s Office:
“Mayor Muriel Bowser showcased plans to design and build the K Street Transitway, a major streetscape project on K Street NW with dedicated bus lanes, enhanced bicycle accessibility, and safer pedestrian intersections. The project is projected to improve bus speeds by 30 percent for an estimated 40,000 daily bus passengers.
“As DC continues to grow and prosper, we need to reimagine our major roadways for the 21st century with infrastructure improvements that make public transportation more efficient and reliable for residents who rely on it,” said Mayor Bowser. “The K Street Transitway project will transform Downtown with dedicated bus lanes, protected bike lanes, redesigned sidewalks, and safer intersections to help keep DC moving and growing.” (more…)
I’ve seen a lot of weird stuff over the years and this might have just skyrocketed to the top. What the hell?
I saw this magazine tied in front of the Suntrust Bank on Columbia and 18th NW yesterday. The magazine cover talked about 100 top women in business I think, and it’s in a rope knot. It’s not a noose knot, but still a weird knot. And it’s with real rope. Someone had to go through some effort. Those poles aren’t short.
I honestly can’t tell if this is problematic but thought I’d let you guys decide.”

“Finn from Capitol Hill”
“This is Koa, after a long day sniffing and walking around Trinidad, he likes to takes naps just like his people.”
There is a couple in the building next door (not even in my building) who wake me up regularly with their fighting, it is getting increasingly worse. I am not concerned about the noise, I am concerned about their safety. It seems to be getting increasingly volatile. At what point do you call the police to report domestic disturbances and possible violence? What is the protocol for this in DC? I haven’t been able to find local resources.
I would be curious to know if your readers have any feedback on this or experience with it in DC.”
