From an email:

“The famous street scene in the opening sequence of House of Cards is up for a makeover. This coming weekend plans for a major street redevelopment will be unveiled directly north of the nation’s Capitol.

Hot on the heels of the major re-decking of the Dupont Circle underpass, an important new plan is being proposed for the underpass of North Capitol Street in Bloomingdale.

The site, made famous by the opening sequence of House of Cards, is up for a complete architectural makeover. Aiming to reestablish bonds between residents and reconnect the east and west sides, the Bloomingdale Civic Association and The Bloomingdale Village Square Initiative are proposing the much-anticipated renderings of a proposed Promenade deck-over.

This Saturday, January 25 from 2 – 4 pm at St. Martin’s Catholic Church (Pioneer Room), located at 7 T Street, NW (corner of North Capitol and T Streets, NW) there will be an open forum for those interested in knowing more.”
