The District Department of Transportation has scheduled a June 27 meeting to provide a progress report on the 17th & 19th Streets Safety Improvement Project. Unfortunately, the meeting conflicts with the June 27 ANC 6B Hill East Task Force meeting on the future of the DC General shelter.
Since many Hill East residents plan to attend the meeting on DC General, DDOT was kind enough to share with me the information and handouts they plan to present and distribute on Thursday. Note that the final recommendations for the 17th & 19th Streets project remain the same as discussed last fall – DDOT will not announce any major changes at the meeting.

The big news is that the project is on schedule – the design phase is 90 percent complete with a deadline of Aug. 31, 2013. That means construction could begin by the end of the year. I’m also pleased that the project recommendations include the stretch of 17th Street SE between Potomac Ave SE and Barney Circle. v
DDOT’s June 27 meeting on the project will take place from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm at Pilgrim AME Church (612 17th Street NE).
