Washington, DC


We last spoke about the Sherman Ave. Streestscape plans back in June. Thanks to a reader for sending the notes from a recent meeting on the subject:

“Essentially, construction will begin June 2010 and will last 18-24 months. Trees will be planted in the median where possible. There is one block with no median and there are a few medians with no trees due to underground utilities. We were assured that there were trees planted where feasible. Shrubs and/or ground cover will fill in the areas with no trees. Sidewalks will be widened with new tree boxes where possible. There will be one lane of traffic in each direction and are 14′ wide and designated as a shared lane supporting cars and bikes. New residential scale lighting will be added to provide more evenly spaced lighting with intersections receiving a higher level of lighting using teardrop style light fixtures. Washington globe light fixtures will be installed between intersections.”
