Ed. Note: It sounds like it could be related to the 3:45pm shooting near the Petworth metro yesterday afternoon.

“Dear PoPville,

Any idea what was happened on the red line yesterday? I was on a north-bound red line train around 4:15 in the afternoon, and when we got to Fort Totten, the police held the train after departing passengers got off (though those of us who were continuing north remained on the train). Officers (with guns unholstered) stood at every open door and did not allow anyone to enter the train (but also didn’t direct those of us on the train to get off). Then a group of police (with guns drawn, shields up, and “SWAT” emblazoned on uniforms) moved from car to car doing what appeared to be a sweep. Read More

From the Mayor’s Office on Saturday:

“Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), and the National Park Service (NPS) celebrated the newest section of the Metropolitan Branch Trail (MBT), between Brookland and Fort Totten. This new section closes a gap in the District’s pedestrian and bicycle network and represents a key milestone in the goal to complete the nearly 900-mile regional trail network.

“Washingtonians are eager to embrace new ways of using public space and new ways of getting around our city, and we’re proud that with the MBT, we’re delivering a space that is practical, safe, and that people truly enjoy using,” said Mayor Bowser. “As we continue investing in a multi-modal city that is more sustainable and less reliant on cars, we know that spaces like these will play a critical role in our transportation network.”

The new 0.8-mile trail is 11 feet wide, connects the Fort Totten Metro to the Brookland Metro, and provides North-South bicycle and pedestrian connectivity for Catholic University, Lamond Riggs, Queens Chapel, Manor Park, and the surrounding neighborhoods. The new trail features LED lighting, stormwater management facilities, wayfinding signage, and security cameras. Read More

220 Riggs Road, NE

Thanks to Natalie for sending: “The Chick-Fil-A (on the former Taco Bell/KFC lot) is now open in Fort Totten NE. Business looks brisk. Unsurprisingly, there’s now a bottleneck with cars trying to make a U-turn on 3rd to get over to the restaurant, as well as another bottleneck trying to turn from 3rd into the parking lot (despite the double drive-through lines).” Read More

“Dear PoPville,

Went to drop off my laundry for wash (Sunday around 2:15pm), first time in more than a year since this business used to be on Kennedy Street, and as I was leaving to run a couple errands, two kids started yelling at each other down New Hampshire which then lead to them traveling up towards the Laundromat parking lot.

“Dear PoPville,

We live in NE (Ft.Totten/Lamond Riggs area) and when my husband was taking our dog out he found these empty 9mm shell casings in our backyard. We are not gun owners and we have no idea where they came from. That said, we were wondering if there was anything we should do with these other than just dispose of them, like notify law enforcement or some other entity? I’m sure this sort of thing happens a lot all over DC and we figured we’d see if anyone else has any thoughts on this.”
