    This is the area north of Channing that has been closed for a number of years. However DCWater will continue to sporadically close other parts of 1st St whenever the hell they feel like it. Yay.

      i know what you mean, Its a real shame those houses won’t have their historic lead pipes anymore. (source: https://geo.dcwater.com/Lead/)

        Honey I know you’re trying to be awesome and “win” or whatever, but living in a neighborhood that is being constantly gutted, is noisy all the time, where workers take our parking spots and cat call women walking their dogs, where people get flat tires constantly from the construction debris… it gets old. Lots of us are pissed and sick of it, and we have a right to be. HAVE A GREAT DAAAAAAAAAAY.

          No flat tires from this, but three from various sloppy contractor dumpsters since the major flips started a decade and a half ago, but I’m glad I won’t have to vacuum out my basement again. The RI bridge replacement was a pain and we survived, its a headache, but at least the newcomers are finally getting stuff done. To add to your joy, pepco and washington gas neglect their infrastructure the same, so expect more street tear-ups when McMillian gets started and needs additional gas and power.

  • Oh boo. I got to run straight down the middle of it at 6am this morning. It was nice while it lasted. (Caveat: don’t jump all over me. I *know* it was a huge pain. I just enjoyed this small silver lining.)

    I will believe it when I see it…

    probably irrelevant to most but now that big electronic sign across from big bear can stop taking up an entire parking spot on my block!
