strawberry ice cream and iced tea at the Bloomingdale Farmers Market

From: "Markets & More" 
Subject: Strawberry Ice Cream at BFM
Date: June 27, 2019 at 7:01:12 AM EDT


BFM fans,

Pearl Tea has joined the market and just in time
for this hot weekend. Her iced tea is a good way to beat the summer heat. So is
ice cream. Sample the new Strawberry ice cream at Bri’s. Think fresh
strawberries topped with Strawberry ice cream or a couple of scoops of Cold
Brew into an iced coffee. That’s a heat quencher.

in front of the Big Bear Cafe)

DC Water NEBT large equipment delivery on about Tuesday, 07-09-2019

From: Hadiah Jordan

NEBT: Large equipment delivery on or about July 9th

Northeast Boundary Tunnel Project
Florida Avenue NW Construction Site
June 26, 2019

Greetings residents and businesses.

Overnight Delivery of Heavy Equipment 
On or about Tuesday, July 9, 2019, DC Water's contractor will deliver a drill rig, which is a large piece of construction equipment, to the Florida Avenue NW Construction Site, located on 3rd Street, NW between Florida Avenue and Rhode Island Avenue, NW. In order to relieve chronic sewer flooding, DC Water is constructing a diversion facility on 3rd Street NW which will include a diversion chamber, a 20-foot diameter drop shaft, and other structures to convey flow from the existing sewer to the Northeast Boundary Tunnel. The drill rig will be used in the construction of the drop shaft.

Because of the size of the drill rig, it will be necessary to deliver it during hours when traffic is reduced on Rhode Island Avenue. The estimated time of this delivery will be between 2:00 AM and 4:00 AM. The equipment is being moved from its current position at the Rhode Island NE Construction Site to the 3rd Street, NW site.
A drill rig like the one in the above photo will be delivered unassembled to the Florida Avenue NW Construction Site. 

Residents should be advised they may experience noise from trucks and the removal of the drill rig from a large flatbed vehicle. Assembly of the drill rig will not occur during the overnight hours. The drill rig will be assembled during regular construction hours, 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM Monday – Friday.

Drop Shaft Secant Pile Work to Begin
On or about the same day, July 9, work will begin within the fenced construction site to install secant piles as support for the excavation of the drop shaft. For this work, which is expected to be completed in 12 weeks, 3rd Street, NW will continue to be closed to traffic and sidewalk closures will be in place as well as a pedestrian detour on 3rd Street NW.

Pedestrian Detour
  • The crosswalks across 3rd Street at Florida Avenue and Rhode Island Avenue, NW will be reduced in width but will allow for continued and safe pedestrian crossing during construction.

Map of pedestrian detour
The pedestrian detour is indicated by green arrows. The crosswalks at 3rd Street and Florida Avenue, NW and 3rd Street and Rhode Island Avenue, NW will be open.

Additional Information
  • People who live or work near the affected locations will notice additional construction equipment and personnel as well as noise associated with construction activities.
  • Commuters and pedestrians will notice road signs and/or flagging personnel directing them safely around the work site. Please slow down, stay calm, and be patient as you approach the work zone.
  • Pedestrians will notice signage for the closed sidewalks reducing access. Follow the pedestrian detour to safely cross 3rd Street, NW.
