“Dear PoPville,
I am wondering if your readers have any information on the never-ending Heritage Foundation construction project at 3rd & Mass Ave NE, near Union Station and the H Street Corridor.

I live in a nearby apartment building, and while property management does its best to keep tenants updated, we’ve been putting up with construction sounds beginning at 6 AM, dumpsters and debris lining the street, increased rodent presence, and torn up sidewalks since work on the building began in January 2016 – also when the beloved “Bagels & Baguettes” closed as a result of the construction.
