At the Anacostia Waterfront Community Fair a few weeks back
, I picked up a card that indicated South Capitol Street Draft Environmental Impact Statement
(which is centered around the construction of a new Douglass Bridge
) would be released on Feb. 8. So, all last week, I kept checking in at southcapitoleis.com
just to see if the site had been updated or if there were any "Coming Soon" announcements. Nada. Imagine my surprise, then, when on Saturday I received a brochure via snail mail
(how wonderfully old school!) announcing the the EIS would be released on Feb. 15, with the two public meetings pushed to March 4 and 5
, and the deadline for public comment moved to March 31. The web site
still makes no mention of the impending release, though you can see the two build alternatives being evaluated. More about this when the draft is actually released.
