Latest update from @dcwater to address #BloomingdaleDC traffic concerns related to @FirstStTunnel project http://www.dcwater.com/workzones/projects/first_street_tunnel/breaking_news.cfm …
FST UpdatesDC Water's First Street Tunnel Project Team acknowledges the traffic and safety concerns in Bloomingdale- especially north of Rhode Island Ave NW and south of Bryant Street NW. Recent street closures have increased traffic in the alleyways, especially the east alley of First Street from U Street to Channing Street NW. We are working with MPD, DDOT, DC Fire & EMS on a three-pronged approach to traffic calming measures that will hopefully curtail dangerous and reckless driving while providing safer streets for local residents.
- Enforcement- MPD on site patrolling and issuing tickets. Parking Enforcement is also in the area.
- Signage-.Post 10 MPH speed signs in alleys, Post 15 MPH signs on local streets. Add "Do Not Enter" signs in selected alley ways to discourage flow-thought traffic. Two additional message boards on Rhode Island and N. Capital.
- Physical Changes-Speed humps on Second at W Streets NW and U Street from First Street to Second Street NW. Use of collapsible barriers (pilot program) in alleyway adjacent to Crispus Attuck Park. Repair speed hump on W Street NW.
