Adams Morgan: Party zone becomes construction zone
Popular shopping and dining spot Adams Morgan is about to become a construction zone, Dr. Gridlock reports. According to District Department of Transportation plans, the neighborhood is about to undergo street construction along 18th street from Florida Ave. to Columbia Road, a vibrant stretch filled with restaurants and bars.
The District plans to reconstruct the road, widen the sidewalks, improve the water main and more in the Adams Morgan Streetscape project, which is slated for completion in May 2012. The construction will leave one lane open in each direction for traffic, and DDOT has stressed that they want to leave Adams Morgan "open for business" during the work.
The construction hours will take place between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., and the work will be completed in phases to minimize disruption. DDOT has hired a community liaison, Thomas Pipkin, to address public concerns. He can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 202-642-6774.
More information is available on the project's website or at a public information session for the 18th Street reconstruction between Massachusetts and Florida avenues on Monday night at the International Student House at 1825 R St. NW from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
