Join Briefing on Massachusetts Ave Construction by DDOT - Tues Feb 23

Urgentissimo! Please join an important public meeting THIS Tuesday, February 23, 6:30pm - 8:00 pm ET. Rehabilitation of Mass Ave NW -- Pre-Construction Meeting 

What's the meeting about? On Tuesday, DDOT will describe the final MARP plan for rebuilding the roadway, reconstruction of sidewalks and gutters, storm drains, etc., completing 3 years of revisions from the first draft in October 2017. Restore Mass Ave, whose mission is to save and expand the tree canopy of historic Embassy Row, gave feedback at each stage of the 350-page engineer plans.

Why should I be concerned? While the final MARP plan has many benefits for roadbed and infrastructure, the construction project will affect everyone from 20th Street to Waterside Drive, including all 200+ curbside street trees and many second row trees. To learn more about RMA's 3 years of work to make the detailed plans "greener" and our Campaign for Shade to monitor the work, please visit our updated web pae .
