  • 1127 5th St Nw Washington, District of Columbia - Mount Vernon Triangle

    My service request 14-00197035 was handled improperly. 311 claims there was no trash at the location on 7/29 @ 8am. This is untrue and it was very obviously and clearly located at the curb in front of the house for removal. It remains there right now. It is too heavy to move again to wait an additional 3 wks for it to be rescheduled. It needs to be picked up ASAP. The items consist of pieces of an Ikea wardrobe disassembled and stacked in a pile.

  • Montgomery Co/Handicap Parking Washington, DC 20532, USA - Mount Vernon Triangle

    MY GRIPE: BLUE CARDBOARD HANDICAP SIGNS conveniently hung on windshield to use a designated space. When leaving space, SIGN REMOVED. Handicap designation should be on rear licence plate to prevent cheaters who got placards from their doctors. I RISK a fine if I should park in a designated handicap space. For most seniors older than 75, still driving, a sympathetic doctor would not deny a request for handicap considerations. I have observed that most use, is for convenience by able citizens.

  • 227-233 H Street Northwest ( Westbound H St And Mass Ave Nw) Washington, District of Columbia - Mount Vernon Triangle

    I'm sure this has been brought up before... but the timing of the light that allows you to turn left from Westbound H st NW onto 3rd st NW in order to access 395 is a nightmare. I live off of H st and I cannot think of any good reason for the light to be timed so short, especially outside of rush hour. The volume on that section of 395 is generally low and the volume on Mass Ave in both directions isn't too bad, but this light is timed so that only a few cars make it through, backing up traffic all the way to Union Station 4 blocks away. It takes more time to get down H st through that light than it does for me to get where I'm going in Alexandria once I reach 395. It would make it considerably nicer to live in this section of NE DC if that light were even just 2-3 seconds longer.

    There is constant gridlock at the intersection of westbound Massachusetts Avenue and H St. entering the 3rd St., Tunnel. There should be a traffic officer giving out gridlock tickets every morning. Maybe that would stop people from pulling into an intersection and blocking the box.

    The grass lot on m street between 9th and 10th should provide dog bags and bins as too many people fail to pick up after their dogs. Would also be nice to have this available in the lot on 10th and the park on mass and 10th.

  • 401 New York Ave Nw Washington D.C., DC 20001, USA - Mount Vernon Triangle

    Immediately after passing through the 395/4th signal, WB NY Ave gains a lane on the left side & at the same time drops a lane on the right onto M St. Parked cars along the right side regularly cause this right lane to drop immediately beyond the 395/4th signal.

    Lane shifts are preferred in lieu of such drop/add scenarios whenever feasible. I believe such a shift could fit in here: the leftmost lane in the 2-lane section shifting into the leftmost lane in the 3-lane section; and the rightmost lane shifting into the center lane rather than the rightmost lane. This would maintain through continuity on toward Mt Vernon Sq whilst still enabling easy right-turns onto L Street (which is the route I take).

    This might be easy to accomplish with just some marking changes if DDOT is OK with a somewhat sharper shift (which DC certainly has no shortage of). Though if designing by AASHTO guidelines, one would probably have to shorten the parking area a bit or possibly lengthen the taper in the median... the former potentially a more political issue and the latter a bit more pricey; but it's likely just some minor restriping might be able to do it without having to worry about parking or geometry.

    [NOTE: I have emailed DDOT regarding this issue on 5 separate occasions & received no response.]
