    Thanks! This looks pretty good, although I really wish that they would restore the flow of 3rd St across Mass — I have to cross Mass at 3rd every day, and I can assure you, the cars right now don’t seem to think that they have to stop there! Do you know who in the government I should contact with my suggestion?

    Tom, it is a challenging intersection. You’ve got H Street, Mass Ave, 3rd and 4th Streets, plus I-395 ramps. I think 3rd Street will remain disconnected. I would suggest crossing at 4th and Mass instead of 3rd. Sometimes taking a slightly indirect route for a more comfortable walk is the better idea. The 300 block of Mass is very narrow and this detour shouldn’t add much time to your trip.

    I’m not sure of the best government official to contact with your suggestion. ANC commissioners frequently claim DDOT does not acknowledge their communications therefore I doubt the agency will be responsive to an out of the blue suggestion from a citizen. I suppose I would start with Tommy Wells office.
