Dear PoP – “What the F*** is going on at 14th and Park/Kenyon, NW?”

“Dear PoP,

If this situation doesn’t call for an F-bomb, I don’t know what does.

I tried to get to the DCUSA parking garage entrance on Park Road, but the road has been reconfigured in such a way that you cannot go straight across 14th Street on Park Road. I tried to ask the peach of a traffic cop about it, and she screeched at me “I don’t KNOW!”.

So I went around the block, down 13th, and up Kenyon. Again, this beacon of sweetness and light traffic cop forced me away from the turn I wanted to make.

It looks like the situation on Park Road, where you’re forced to turn right up 14th Street, is permanent. It’s the way the islands were placed. I think that in the absence of psychotic public servants, it’s possible to go from Kenyon to Park. Though it also looked possible that they are installing islands to prevent that turn/jog. And of course, one is able to turn right onto Park if one is southbound on 14th street.

I wouldn’t have to waste the PoP community’s time if there were any signage, or if the traffic cops were more inclined to help and less inclined to abuse. Any insight into the new traffic pattern would be appreciated.”

Could this be right – you can’t continue going straight onto Park road from Park road? It def. looks that way. Anyone know why this would be the case?
