“Over 30 streetlights out after dark in the upper 14th Street corridor in Columbia Heights”

street light out
Ed. Note: I’m not attaching all the photos of lamps out but I vouch they were in the original email

A reader passes on a letter sent to the Mayor’s Office:

“I went out again last night, August 10th, to review the locations where I had observed streetlights out the night before. I went east on Park Road NW from 16th Street to 14th Street, NW; headed south to Columbia Road, then proceeded north along 14th Street NW. I extended my walk further north to Arkansas, then went east to Georgia Avenue before returning on Arkansas west to 16th Street, north to Newton Street, east to 17th / Mt. Pleasant Street.

My observations are listed below as to what locations I observed
streetlights out and the time. Some key points are:

– Over 30 streetlights out after dark in the upper 14th Street corridor in
Columbia Heights
– 3 streetlights out in immediate proximity to where the fatal homicide
occurred last week in the 3500 block of 14th St. NW
– 3 streetlights out on Arkansas Ave NW on the north side of Peoples’
Congregational Church, UCC
– 3 streetlights out at the intersection of Park Road NW and Mt. Pleasant
Street NW

I did not observe any repair work being done during my walk.
