Rock Creek Church Work Has Begun

Crews were out early to remove the old sidewalk at Reserve 321-A

Around 7 a.m. Monday morning, June 28, 2010, the work crew showed up to begin the reconstruction of the 500/600 block of Rock Creek Church Road, NW. They cordoned off the trees along the south side of the street and began by removing the sidewalks on the north and east side of the reserve at Rock Creek Church and Park Place. In less than an hour, the crew had the old sidewalk removed and forms in place along the north side of the reserve.

New sidewalks in place

Considering the heat of the day and the intense storm that hit in the afternoon, considerable progress was made. By the end of the day the new sidewalks were in place along the north and part of the east sides of the property. The crosswalk sections had not been touched.

From the notice that was distributed to residents it was clear that the roads were a major part of the project. This leads me to wonder if the crosswalk ramps need to wait until the streets have been started or if there is some other reason why they couldn’t be included in the rest of the sidewalk work. Either way, I’m sure there will be an answer in short order as work progresses.

A sea of orange greets pedestrians as they walk along Rock Creek Church Rd, NW. The project is estimated to take 3 weeks
