A reader has been keeping exceptional records about all the street lamps out in Ward 1. They pass on their latest that they sent to the Mayor’s Office:
“The following lights were at as of tonight the 12th of September:
13th and U St se corner
S and 14th at side of 1740 14th St NW
12th and T Streets NW me corner
8th and T Streets NW NW corner
8th and T Streets NW se corner
10 Streetlights in front of 1840 7th St NW
1914 8th St NW
1390 Kenyon St NW
2 streetlights at 1377 Kenyon St NW
Park Rd NW and Pine St – side of Sacred Heart Church
In addition Howard University’s lots on 7th and T and 7th and S were both open and unmonitored and had all their lights out – about 9 lights altogether out and also their lot at 9th and W had its lights out.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide DDOT to insure streetlights are working.
I have lived in Ward 1 for 35 years. I have always experienced the Ward getting 2nd tier service from city agencies compared to Ward 3. Ward 2 and the federal zone. I remain hopeful that will change under Mayor Bowser.”
