Pedestrian/Bike Tunnel Under Intersection Of Canal & Foxhall Roads washington , dc - Downtown
the lights in the pedestrian/bike tunnel underneath the split at foxhall & canal roads NW have been out since early spring. that tunnel is creepy to begin with, but without lights it's even worse - especially if you are biking, b/c your eyes don't have a chance to adjust. the tunnel is generally wet from the canal as well, so not having lighting in there increases the chance of slips/falls. this situation is dangerous and needs to be fixed ASAP.
530 9th St Ne Washington D.C., DC - Capitol Hill
I submitted this repair request more than 2 months ago. The case was given a case number and "closed" yet nothing has been done. It is indicated here that sidewalk repair requests generally take 25 days to address. It is now much longer than 25 days.
Roots from a tree that was cut down about a year ago have not been removed. The roots have pushed up and dislocated many of the bricks and it has become a dangerous walking hazard. Many people trip and fall on this area. The roots need to be dug out and the brick sidewalk reinstalled.
511 O Street NW, Washington, District of Columbia - Shaw
This abandoned house is falling apart. There is trash including a mattress in the front entryway. Drivers have been spotted stopping there to urinate in the basement entrance. The yard is overgrown. The boards are coming away from the windows. It looks accessible to vagrants and to people looking to stash things that shouldn't be stashed (e.g. drugs, weapons). In short, this beautiful old edifice has become a public hazard and public nuisance.
Is there a plan to hold the owner accountable for making this property habitable and safe? Is there something we here in the neighborhood can do to help?
1501-1523 Benning Rd Ne Washington D.C., DC 20002, USA - Stadium-Armory
Sign restricting left turn from Bladensburg onto Benning Rd was never replaced after construction. The traffic light has the right turn only arrow but cars still attempt to make the left, blocking oncoming traffic from Maryland Ave and 15th St NE
I-395 N / 14th Bridge Washington, DC - Downtown
Construction on the 14th St. bridge caused lane shifting. New solid lines were painted on the approach to the bridge, and the old broken lines were grayed out. The gray paint is wearing off and the broken lines are visible again. This is causing confusion for many drivers, thinking the broken lines are the proper lanes, and suddenly finding themselves partially crossing into another lane where other vehicles are hitting the breaks to avoid being sideswiped.
3701 16th Street Northwest Washington, District of Columbia - Columbia Heights
For clarification: I reported this here yesterday, and there has been some work to fix one of the many enormous potholes on 16th street within that block, but it was not the trench I was referring to - that trench still remains trecherous and uncared for.
There is a pothole on 16th St. that is larger (both wider and longer) than the size of a sedan due to ongoing road construction. For several weeks, it was a mound which I jokingly referred to as the largest, unmarked speed bump in the city. Some work was done to the area and it is no longer a mound, but a trench with several, deep potholes within the trench itself, and it doesn't matter how slowly you drive over it, you will still hit each dent with a bang. I have to drive over or around this every day on both my morning and evening commutes, as it is in the lane open for south bound commuters during the morning rush and open to northbound commuters during the evening rush. I have witnessed fender benders and bottlenecking as a result, and my drive has become noticably longer as a result of the delays this causes. I'm sure my poor tires are much worse for the wear as well. Please fix!
1000 New Jersey Ave Se Washington, DC - Mount Vernon Triangle
Intersection of K and NJ ave SE needs the crosswalks repainted. They were on all 4 corners at one time before construction began at 909 NJ. Now there is a charter school at 1017 NJ and regularly kids out on NJ ave trying to cross. Also, the amount of pedestrian traffic has increased due to the apartment buildings that are now open and the people walking to the metro or out with their pets. People speed down NJ ave and clearly marked crossing for pedestrians is needed once again.
721 Morton St Nw Washington, DC 20010, USA - Park View
there has been a hosuing construction project that appears to be abandoned and now is accumulating trash and rats with the unemptied dumpster siting on the front lawn. there also might be squatters living on the first floor

Dalecarlia Pkwy Nw Washington, DC 20016, USA - Au-Tenleytown
It's always been challenging to turn left from the southern end of Dalecarlia Parkway to Loughboro Road but with the construction next to Sibley Hospital and reduced sightlines, it's now a very hazardous intersection. Most of the cars driving east on Loughboro are trying to turn left onto Dalecarlia while the cars at the end of Dalecarlia are trying to turn left onto Loughboro. Without a stop sign or light on Lougboro, the stream of cars during morning rush hour never ends, so the cars from Dalecarlia agressively push into traffic, creating a very dangerous situation. Any help would be appreciated.
