Alley Rebuilding Poised to Begin

I noticed over the weekend that no parking signs had been  posted along the alley bordered by Georgia Avenue, Rock Creek Church Road, Warder Street, and Quebec Place. From conversations I had with DDOT earlier this year, I know that this alley is scheduled to be re-bricked and was planned to start in April or May so I was fairly certain that’s what this was for. The time frame is from April 19-May 10.

Early this morning, a work crew showed up and I had an opportunity to chat with them. Alley work will begin this morning and be completed in three phases to be the least disruptive as possible. Work will begin on the west end of the alley (closest to Georgia Avenue) since that is the area in the worst condition.

I’ll post instructions for trash collection during this period once I’ve confirmed how it will be handled. Traditionally, trash has been collected from the street side of the properties during alley construction.

Alley between the 700 blks of Rock Creek Church and Quebec. It's long needed attention

The utilities under the alley have been marked -- in this case the lines from Pepco

Heavy equipment started to arrive this morning to begin alley work

    This is good news for the people who use this alley. How does the city decide to re-brick an alley? Ours is off of Warder and is in bad shape as well.
