It’s just painful to see this after so many months of construction when the road was still all shiny and new. And I know sometimes it can’t be helped but it was looking so good…
From a DDOT press release for the Thurs evening rush hour:
“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is advising motorists that there are road closures in Columbia Heights due to a possible gas leak. 14th Street, NW is currently closed from Newton Street to Monroe Street, and Monroe is closed between 13th and 16th Streets.
Drivers are advised to use alternator routes including 13th, 15th and 16th Streets for north and south travel, and Irving Street for eastbound travel in Columbia Heights instead of Monroe.
Washington Gas is on the scene investigating the leak, but the closures are expected to last through rush hour.”
Again, this was the scene from Thurs. evening. Hopefully it will all be cleared up by morning.
