Dear PoPville – Sherman Ave Construction Update

Dear PoPville,

I am wondering if you’ve heard anything lately on the road construction on Sherman Ave. I have to drive up and down that road every day, and it is destroying my car’s suspension with all the bumps and holes. It is absolutely terrible, and construction seems to either have stopped or be moving at a snail’s pace. Any word on when it will end?

There is a good Web site from DDOT devoted entirely to the Sherman Avenue Reconstruction project:

“The Sherman Avenue, NW Streetscape project will provide modifications and safety improvements for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic within the Sherman Avenue corridor from Barry Place, NW to Park Road, NW. The project is a reconstruction and streetscape project that will also include elements of safety improvements, traffic signaling, pavement marking, signage and bicycle access modifications.”

You can see the construction schedule here. The anticipated completion date is July 8, 2012.
