Awesome Typos Vol. 17 – North-South Corridor Includes Potworth


Thanks to ‏@pluscachange for tweeting us the photo:

“Really, @DDOTDC “Potworth”? What are you trying to say?!?”

Ah too good.

This comes from – DDOT to host public meetings for North-South Corridor Planning Study:

“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT)is initiating a planning study to examine opportunities for public transportation improvements in the North-South corridor through the District of Columbia and will host the first round of public meetings starting in November.

The study area is focused on a 9-mile, north-south corridor that connects the Takoma/Silver Spring area to the Buzzard Point/Southwest Waterfront area. The study area extends east-west from about 16th Street on the west to approximately one-quarter mile east of Georgia Avenue.

Over the next year, DDOT will be working in collaboration with the community, area businesses, government agencies, and other stakeholders to identify and evaluate street-level, high quality transit service that offers better reliability and greater capacity than existing bus operations.

Throughout the study, DDOT will host three sets of meetings located in the north, central, and south areas of the corridor to receive input on possible alignments. These meetings will include an overview presentation and the opportunity for residents to provide their input. The same information will be presented at all four meetings.
