Georgia Avenue Great Streets Work Extending to Otis Place
Work on the Middle Georgia Avenue Great Streets project is making a noticeable impact in northern Park View of late. The corners on the east side of Georgia Avenue at Rock Creek Church Road, Quebec Place, and Princeton Place are now finished with new pavers installed rather than concrete. While I would have preferred a red brick instead of the dull gray pavers, it’s still a nice upgrade from the concrete. Red pavers are installed along the curbing between intersections.
The intersection of Princeton Place is also notable since bump outs on the east side have been installed. I presume this is to help make the crosswalks safer. A bump out is also planned for the southwest corner, but it doesn’t appear that one will be installed at the CVS corner.
Work is now also progressing down to Otis Place, with granite curbing installed along the eastern side of Georgia. While the western side of the Avenue is moving at a slower pace, it doesn’t look like it is all that much behind and will also be getting the new curbing and sidewalks. Still to come between Princeton and Otis Places are the new street lamps that have already been installed north of Princeton. Based on some of the trench work recently completed the wiring to support the new locations of the street lamps has already commenced.Development, Great Streets, streetscape comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
