New Jersey at H, Looking North-Northeast (see more)

* Tommy Wells's web site has the details on the new times and routes for the N22 bus that runs between Union Station and New Jersey and M. The expanded hours and route changes start on March 30. I've added them to my Take Metro! page.
* After the recent columns that have caused some gnashing of teeth with their representations of the area around the ballpark, readers might enjoy Marc Fisher's "Scenes from a Changing City" posts this morning: "But it was the walk from the Metro station to the stadium that taught me something about how cities change. The Metro entrance closest to the stadium isn't open yet--it will be done by Opening Day, we're assured--so I walked the extra couple of blocks from New Jersey Avenue. Any walk around the ballpark area these days is a bit treacherous, as the area is cluttered with construction materials and work crews. But it's possible to see that what two years ago was an industrial and nightclub zone in which only the brave dared walk alone is on its way to becoming another piece of the grid. What was a collection of rutted roads, empty lots, warehouses and fringy businesses is becoming an extension of downtown in which walking around is as routine as on Seventh Street in the East End, K Street downtown or M Street NW in Georgetown." (And thanks for the shout out, Marc.)

In a recent column about getting to the ballpark, Fisher talked of walking down from Cap South Metro under the Southeast-Southwest Freeway. He didn't think much of the walk, part of which he described as "downright scary." It's no coincidence that in today's column, he mentions his hope that someday the freeway will be taken down.

This could be a harbinger. Fisher's experience is going to be repeated by thousands of Nats fans over the next few months, and they are likely to come to the same conclusion as him: The freeway needs to go. I hope this turns out to be the case.

If I remember correctly, the removal of the SE-SW Freeway was a part of the 50-year plan for Washington that was submitted during the Clinton administration (circa 1996/97). (Of course, that plan also had a new Washington ballpark being built atop a platform over 395 at New York Avenue...)

Burying the Freeway would certainly create many benefits for the city, not the least of which would be the creation of extremely valuable real estate that could be used by the city to extend the developing Near Southeast area, as well as fatten the tax base and create a more walkable city. For those reasons, I truly believe the Freeway will go underground eventually.

what is with the 55M construction camera? is there some sort of new login that you have to enter to see the camera?

It would definitely be nice to not have the freeway as it is now. But a quicker, cheaper change they could do to make the walk from Capitol South Metro nicer would be to park those garbage and other huge trucks that line the street somewhere else.

I suspect that they will not resist the temptation to place new buildings so close as to create additional engineering hassles to bury the freeway that it will instead remain as is. The elimination of the northbound on-ramp is probably happening to accommodate new buildings closer to the SW/SE Freeway viaduct (space is needed to stage construction while maintaining traffic). Just look at the 1999 construction of the Capital Square townhouses with a row of such a mere 16 feet from the SW Freeway retaining wall, and the so-called Golden Rule apartment building on NJ Ave. directly in the path of the unused underground ramp to I-395.
