  • U.S. 1 Washington, DC 20018, USA - Eckington

    There is a pedestrian bridge from the Metro station (S of RI Ave) to the N of RI ave, E of the rail tracks.

    Instead of walking down the bridge, under the (unsafe, poorly lit, tiny sidewalked) rail bridge, over a block and up a big hill (also with tiny sidewalks), HUNDREDS of people per day jump over the side of the pedestrian bridge, up a hill, around the rail fence, onto a LEDGE (12 inches and 40 feet above the ground?!!!), cross the tracks and go to the shopping center.

    If it hasn't already, someone is going to get hurt or killed, and I can bet it will be a kid or teenager.

    When hundreds of people per day are risking their lives to save 10 minutes and avoid a creepy area, something needs to be done NOW! I heard there is some long-term plan, but please do it now!

  • 2000 Rhode Island Ave. Ne Washington, District of Columbia - Brookland

    20th Street NE and 22nd Street NE are both too narrow to support two-way traffic. We have witnessed numerous near-accidents as drivers turn onto these streets from Rhode Island Ave., nearly hitting cars who are pointed southbound about to turn onto Rhode Island. This is because cars park on both sides of the streets, and the streets allow for two-way traffic, essentially cramping 4 lanes into a space barely big enough for 3. It seems like a simple solution would be EITHER to make 20th St. NE a one-way going north, and 22nd St. a one-way going south (or vice versa), OR to eliminate parking on one side of the streets. That area has plenty of street parking as it is. As a Brookland resident, I think this problem should be fixed ASAP to help reduce injuries and accidents in this area.

    Vehicle is abandoned at end of alley that lets out onto Edgewood. It appears the vehicle is on private land, but it is not, it is the end of the public alley.

  • 3400-3498 8th Street Northeast Washington, District of Columbia - Edgewood

    This issue is regarding the parking signs on the west side of 8th street near the intersection with Monroe St. The issue is that there are two No Parking signs. The one closest to the intersection indicates "No Parking ----->" (no parking from sign to the intersection).

    There is a second sign just 10 yards away that says "No Parking <------>" (no parking in either direction).

    So the problem is that it is not clear where EXACTLY it is OK to park.

    My opinion is that the street there is too narrow to allow parking as well as the on-street MBT. I think that narrow section of 8th should have NO PARKING on it.

    My suggestion is to fix the sign near the intersection so it says No Parking <------> so everybody knows you can't park on this block. This would make it safer for cyclists and motorists turning onto 8th from Monroe.

  • 715 Hamlin St Ne Washington, DC 20017, USA - Edgewood

    Sidewalk in front of 715 Hamlin Street is broken up and needs to be repaired. There are many pedestrians that use this sidewalk as there is a school at the end of the street.

  • 3300 18th St Ne Washington, DC 20018, USA - Brookland

    i live in front of the intersection of 18th and Kearney and constantly see people blow through the intersection on 18th and not slow down much less stop. This is a 4 way stop and I think something needs to be done. Also people speed on this stretch of 18th and I have witnessed numerous bad accidents, including one recently at 18th and Lawrence that involved an MPD car.

  • 2600 Blk 10th St Ne (Rear) Washington, DC - Brookland

    The alley between the 2600 block of Reed St NE and the 2600 block of 10th St NE has become a dumping ground for anything people don't care to dispose of properly, particularly around the rear entrance to the warehouse that belongs to an auto shop that faces Reed St. Items dumped in this area have included bicycle tires, furniture, fluorescent light tubes, empty beer bottles/cans, a segment of a brick column, and even an oversized tree trunk.

  • Street Trash Archived
    12th Street Ne Monroe Street NE, Washington, DC - Brookland

    As a Brookland resident and an advocate for DC and all the great things the city has to offer, it is embarrassing to walk with my family through Brookland's "main street" (12th St NE) and see all the trash, discarded cans, bottles everywhere. Commercial businesses along 12 St NE as well as semi-permanent vendors like City Bikes and others should be held accountable for cleaning up their premises and locations. Metro has a responsibility as well to clean up around their area. It seems that the city nor the commercial property owners are doing anything about the trash problem. Brookland residents are keeping up their properties and should not have to constantly pick and up around commercial business. I wish the city had the same sense of responsibility to enforce clean up initiatives for commercial business owners. LOCATION-all along 12th St NE, between Michigan Ave. and Monroe St. NE, down Monroe St. NE, over bridge towards Michigan Ave.
