Half at Potomac, Looking East-Northeast (see more)

Just a few items to catch up on, though they've already been tweeted (Twitter really is the best friend of a lazy blogger):
* The Navy Yard is having a ceremonial ribbon-cutting for its portion of the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail on Wednesday morning (May 11) at 11 am. It was on April 1 that the Navy opened this long-completed but long closed off stretch, which runs from just east of the 11th Street Bridges to the Yards Park, though it is only open from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) and is subject to closure if the Navy deems it necessary. (I finally took my first walk on it from the Yards Park and back recently, though I did it close to closing time and was imagining the hilarity that would have ensued if I had gotten locked in.) This ceremony also dovetails with the start of the BID's Wednesday Lunchtime Concert Series at the park, at 11:30.
* Will from just across the way reports that Camden is having a ceremonial groundbreaking on May 17 for 1345 South Capitol Street, the 276-unit apartment building with ground-floor retail just across from Nationals Park that's been on hold since 2008. Though it's on the Southwest side of the DMZ and therefore in Will's territory (as spelled out in our meticulously negotiated Neighboring Blogger Treaty), I probably won't be able to completely prevent myself from taking photos of the progress from time to time, especially since I have a full set of "befores." But I'll be leaving the bulk of the coverage work to Will.
* The old fogies who were around in the 2004 to 2006 era might remember that a big part of getting the city council to approve the deal to fund and build Nationals Park was the "Community Benefits Fund," which would receive additional ballpark tax money and distribute it to libraries, schools, and other neighborhood developments. But Mike DeBonis reports that Mayor Gray's FY12 budget has a change that essentially makes the mayor and council decide every year whether the fund's money goes to the neighborhood projects or to "other spending priorities" in the city. Citizen groups are unhappy and council members are, too, DeBonis says.

Thanks JD for the update! I work for the US DOT and often walk along the new boardwalk from the Yards Park through the Navy Base to 11th Street. While many walkers turn around and head back the same way, I continue walking up 11th Street to Barracks Row on 8th Street and through the picturesque neighborhoods to 2nd Street.

Any idea when construction will resume on the boardwalk trail at 11th Street? Last I heard, it was supposed to continue for another 9-10 miles to Cumberland, Maryland. Is that right?

Thanks for newsy updates,
Jesse

Cumberland is a bit farther than 9-10 miles. :-) It is supposed to continue up to Bladensburg, and work is continuing on other stretches, but they can't do much about the connection at 11th Street until the bridges are done.

Here's DDOT's info on the trail: link

Hopefully the NY part will allow bikes one day - right now - no bikes -- doesn't make alot of sense but baby steps since it just opened

Just wanted to let you know that this Thursday afternoon (05/12/2011) at 2-3pm, I walked along the boardwalk through the Yards Park to the Navy Base, but discovered that the gates were closed to the Navy Base's boardwalk. I know that the Navy has discretion to close off its boardwalk any time, but it would be nice to have a sign explaining why, when, how long, etc.

You can bookmark this page with alerts on when it will be closed: link

Thanks JD! This link was great - very helpful. I now see that the Navy's boardwalk was closed to the public on May 11 and May 12. It'll be closed again on May 20 at 12:30pm-5:00pm and May 27 at 10:00am-2:00pm.

Will bookmark this link for future reference.

Many thanks JD!
