Beat26 Bulletin Board

For many years I have been sending out information about meetings, events, and information on what’s happening on SE Capitol Hill and surrounding neighborhoods.  This Beat26 Newsletter started out in the mid-1990’s as a way to keep neighbors informed about crime activity long before such information was readily available.

If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter, just send an email to Beat26@aol.com.  Issues are sent out on an irregular basis, when I have something to share and time to put it all together.

    1. Hi Chris! Yes, D Street would be reversed. But, that change is also in the master plan for the Eastern Market Plaza. Is this a problem for you?

  1. Re: the E Mkt Turnaround plan, what changes are included for controlling traffic at the pedestrian crossing at 8th and D – Starbucks/Dunkin Doughnuts. I cross there several times a day and it’s a lawless intersection for pedestrians. Cross at your own peril, for sure.

    1. Hi Kristen … I checked the concept drawing and there is nothing indicated other than zebra crossings. I will keep this in mind. We probably need something more to alert both pedestrians and drivers for a while after the change is made.

  2. I worry how much traffic will get backed up on 8th street driving north when cars struggle to make that left turn onto D Street. It is easy to get on now from 7th but if you are coming north you are going to have to wait for a long time to make that left with all the incoming traffic we get on 8th and those making the right onto 8th from Pennsylvania.

      Thanks for your comments. You make a good point. The ANC opposed the bus route change primarily on its impact on pedestrian safety. DDOT needs to think this idea through more.
