I came across a new DC Department of Transportation website that has tons of great new information on the Sherman Avenue Streetscape project (which, for those who are unfamiliar with the project, will reduce the number of traffic lanes from four to two and add a tree-lined median, wider sidewalks, new landscaping and traffic lights, and shared bike lanes). According to the website, the design is supposed to be finalized by mid-April, construction bidding should be finalized by June, and construction is slated to start this August and be completed by September 2011.
This document from the website also has lots of new design information and the latest depictions of the project. The plans still look great. As someone who lives on Sherman Avenue, I can’t wait.
PS – The final DDOT community meeting on the Sherman Ave Streetscape Project will be held Thursday, April 8, from 6:30 to 8 PM at the DC Housing Finance Agency at 815 Florida Ave NW, according to a flyer I received yesterday at my house from the leader of the Pleasant Plains Civic Association.”
