Trees Will Return to Adams Morgan's 18th Street

Among the causalities of the massive streetscape project in Adams Morgan are trees. The busy thoroughfare of 18th St NW between Florida and Columbia has lost many of the trees which lined it before the project. The good news: they will be replaced! Along with new bike racks, bike sharrows, bulb outs, ADA compliant ramps, more crosswalks, parallel parking and a lot more; Adams Morgan will get new shading trees on its expanded sidewalks.

Above: a recent photo I took near Ventnor Sports. Below: same strip before the tree removal. The entire project, which is quite ambitious --and needed-- will take 15 months, wrapping up late-summer of 2012. Good work DDOT!
