NY Avenue Repairs Beginning

Workers are scheduled to start permanent repairs after this morning's rush hour to the slope along New York Avenue NE that collapsed in May.

They will take about three weeks to build a new retaining wall about 15 feet away from the curb lane by the Amtak property between Fairview Street and the 9th Street Bridge.

That lane along this major commuter route will be closed during the project to protect the workers.

A temporary fix has been in place since the slope failed in May, but the new retaining wall must be built to stabilize the slope, the District Department of Transportation says.

NY Avenue is a sick joke. It should have been converted to and expressway - like Philadelphia's Vin e Street Connector - years ago.

REAL cities SOLVE traffic problems.

Who said DC is a real city?
