New Street Work Temporarily Stalled

Newly paved Manor Place.

Newly paved Manor Place.

I was recently alerted that some of the new paving work that is occurring in the neighborhood hit a temporary setback. Some may have noticed that area streets like Manor Place have recently been repaved. To the west of the Park View School 6th Street is also mostly repaved. However, the 600 block of Newton Place (between 6th and Georgia) has been prepared for new paving but that work has not occurred.

After contacting DDOT, this is what I’ve learned. The installation of the new pavement on Newton has been stymied for the past few weeks due to the paving machine breaking down. The machine is currently being repaired with expectations that it will be repaired soon. Once the repairs are completed, the work on Newton Place will be completed.

    I really like the cobblestones at the end of Newton St. Is there a way we could get them exposed after the final paving?
