Updated Information: There are funds allocated for Georgia Avenue Great Street, for fiscal year 2012.
Georgia Avenue Great Streets Update: Fiscal year 2012 Georgia Avenue - Great Streets from Dahlia to Webster on our obligation plan for design in FY2012 $969,000 and construction in FY2014 $6,460,000. The first number is for design and the $6,460,000 for actual brick and mortar, but that number is decreased likely by $800,000 for DDOT's actual oversight of the project. These numbers shared with me today from DDOT. Posted in City Services, Commuity News & Events with tags DDOT, Georgia Avenue corridor, Great Streets on June 11, 2009 by Kent I wish I had more news on this than I do, but I’ll share what I know. Last night, representatives of DDOT came to the ANC1A meeting to give an update on the Georgia Avenue Great Streets project. The only thing that was learned officially is that the money that was initially set aside for Georgia Avenue was used for H Street, NE, construction. The city has since been trying to find ways to replace those funds and thinks that they have nearly been able to do that. It is their hope that funds will be secured by the end of this summer, with a Fall 2009 start date for construction. What is confusing to me, and to others that were at the meeting, is that the representatives at various times reminded folks that there is an upper, middle, and lower Georgia Avenue plan … and then said that those designations no longer applied … only to reverse that statement and state that there are three areas. Lower Georgia Ave. is designated as between Otis and Florida Avenue. When a question was raised about the Otis to Rock Creek Church Rd. section, we were told that that is part of the Middle Georgia Ave. Plan, a Ward 4 project, so we shouldn’t be too worried about it. The DDOT representatives were reminded that south of Rock Creek Church Rd. IS in Ward 1. As confusing as all of this is, information is available from the DDOT Web site, but I’m sure it won’t be any clearer than what was discussed last night as its dated.
