Final Streetscape Work Improving Georgia Ave. Metro’s East Entrance Begun

(DDOT streetscape work at the Georgia Ave. Metro station)

As I posted on Friday, DDOT began their final push to complete the Middle Georgia Avenue Great Streets project on Monday, June 25th. In addition to the bike racks that will be installed in front of DC Reynolds, the major work will be around the east entrance to the Georgia Ave. Metro Station and the wedge in front of Sweet Mango.

Not only will DDOT be installing pavers to match what has been installed elsewhere on Georgia Avenue, the area around the Metro will also be getting several more tree boxes. The detail below, from DDOT’s plans, show both the pattern of the pavers and the locations of the new tree boxes.

Due to the time of year, there is a very high likelihood that the new trees will not be planted until the regular seasonal tree planting season later this year or early next year.
