“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is scheduled to close one northbound lane of traffic on Connecticut Ave NW from L Street to M Street starting after rush hour Wednesday, June 6. Two lanes will remain open to traffic at all times.
The closure is needed for the installation of a temporary WMATA cooling tower for the Farragut North and Dupont Circle Metro stations. Placement of the temporary cooling tower will close the lane through the fall. (more…)

Thanks to Lila for passing on this very sad retail news:
“Beadazzled Dupont Circle closing June 23
We are very sad to be closing Beadazzled in DC. It was our first store, my baby, built with sweat equity and funded by bead sales from my home over the summer of 1989. For 29 years our amazing team has loved you, and we’ve been grateful to be loved by you. We’ve watched 10-year-old customers, and some of our teen-aged summer staffers grow up to bring their own children into Beadazzled. You’ve helped us through good times and bad, and we hope we’ve done the same for you. (more…)
From ANC Commissioner Nick DelleDonne (2B04) via the Dupont listserv:
“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has prepared a draft plan to add a 2nd bike lane along 17th St. The plans propose a two-way bike path (as on 15th St.) from Lafayette Square to New Hampshire Ave and include the busy, mixed-use area between P and R Streets NW. As presented, DDOT would reduce vehicle traffic from 2 lanes to 1 lane (plus a turning lane at the intersections). Existing sidewalks would not be changed. Parking would be reduced by 20 spaces. Details here.”

I often visit the Michelle Obama Little Free Library at the corner of 16th/Q NW–I probably drop off more than I pick up. It’s such a great idea.
Anyway, Saturday afternoon I went by there on my way to Miss Pixie’s, and was really upset to find someone had broken the whole door. What bastard would do such a thing!?!?!”
