Upcoming Meetings on Road and Transit Issues
Those of you who either drive the Whitehurst Freeway in the District or are affected by its presence in your neighborhood should be interested in the District Department of Transportation's plan to hold public meetings tonight and Wednesday night on the study into whether the Whitehurst should be taken down.
Tonight's session is at Francis Jr. High School, 2425 N St. NW, in the Dupont Circle area. Wednesday's is at St. John's Georgetown Episcopal Church, 3240 O St. NW in Georgetown. Both sessions are from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
You can find a lot of information about the study on the DDOT Web site. I've heard from some commuters who are very upset about the possibility of removing the freeway.
For transit riders, there's a town hall meeting Wednesday night in the District moderated by Metro Board Chairman Gladys Mack and Riders Advisory Council Chairman Dennis Jaffe. Tell them what's on your mind. You can also look at some exhibits and talk to transit officials about the changes in bus service, security issues, the new rail cars, and the redesign that removes some of the poles near the forward and back doors of the cars.
An open house begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by the town hall session from 7 to 9 p.m. at St. Luke's Center, 4923 East Capitol Street SE. That's four blocks east of the Benning Road Metro station on the Blue Line. You can also take the 96, 97, U5, U6, W4 or W54 Metrobus routes to get there.
