DDOT to brief community on K Street Streetscape

The long-anticipated reconstruction of K Street between 7th Street and 3rd Street will begin this fall. The streetscape project will encompass new paving, sidewalks, streetlights, and plantings. The project is expected to cost $9 million and take 18 months to complete. DDOT will brief the community on the project on October 4th starting 6:00 p.m. at the MVTCID office, located at 901 4th Street, NW

    Also, the plans don’t seem to show the Bikeshare station. I assume that would be maintained, though it might have to be re-located temporarily during construction. Does anyone know what’ll happen to that?

    I believe this project doesn’t include streetcar tracks. They’ll tear up the asphalt again later for streetcar tracks if needed. Atleast we’ll get our new sidewalks, lamp posts, trees, etc now rather than waiting several more years for the next mayor after Gray to possibly expand streetcar.

    I wouldn’t worry about the Capital Bikeshare. Those stations are solar and don’t require utility hookup – so they can be moved in under and hour. CaBi will get taken care of.
