A reader writes in:

“Just noticed these new flashing FLOODING signs in Bloomingdale at the intersection of Rhode Island Ave NW and North Capitol Street. Seems odd they put up permanent signs when they are supposedly fixing the problem now.”

Post Express reported:

“Soon, Lucy [1,582-ton tunnel boring machine] will begin boring a tunnel deep under First Street NE, which will, hopefully, solve a longstanding flooding problem in the neighborhoods of Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park.

When completed, the 2,700-foot tunnel will hold excess rainwater and sewage and then slowly pump it back into the treatment system after a storm has passed.”
