On Tuesday, Nov. 18, I’m convening a community meeting to discuss the status of the 17th & 19th Street Safety Improvement Project. The meeting is from 6:30-8 pm at St. Coletta of Greater Washington (1901 Independence Ave SE). Representatives of the District Department of Transportation and DC Water will be in attendance to explain why the improvements are being delayed and to provide an updated timeline. Attendees will also get an update on the status of the reopening of the Southeast Freeway between Barney Circle SE and the 11th Street SE.
I encourage residents who live on or near 17th Street SE to attend the meeting.
