beach drive washington dc

Beach Drive is about to get a much-needed upgrade, but it could mean up to three years before we’ll see the real benefit of the entire improved roadwork. For years road crews have continually dealt with repairing potholes and making patches to the main roadway through the Rock Creek Park area, costing the National Park Service tens of thousands of dollars every year. In fact, it’s been two-and-a-half decades since the road has had any significant improvements, though that’s all about to change.

Right after Labor Day crews plan to start the massive reconstruction project, eventually restoring a total of six bridges, improving and widening the walking and biking paths, replacing streetlights and traffic signals and bringing in raised pavement

southwest waterfront washington dc

While the Southwest Waterfront of today is regarded as an emerging world-class waterfront, soon to be filled with a blend of stunning outdoor space, sophisticated nightlife and teeming with cultural attractions, the waterfront of yesteryear was known for a much different reason.

Housing some of the city’s oldest buildings, including townhouses dating back to the late 1700s and the US Army post of Fort McNair, the end of the Civil War led to a more diverse neighborhood of lower-income homes, mixed in with a smaller selection of large homes and thriving commercial businesses. By the 1950s city planners came up with a somewhat controversial plan of urban renewal, razing many of the old buildings, eventually bringing in modern architecture including
