Speaking of bridges and environmental impact statements, I've only now stumbled across both the South Capitol Street Bridge Study
web site and SouthCapitolEIS.com
, two efforts that ran concurrently over the last six months as part of the project to replace the Frederick Douglass Bridge. (I've only been checking the DDOT Public Meetings
page on a daily basis for weeks now, sure would have been nice if one of their announcements had ever mentioned these URLs!) Both sites have lots of links and information, and should be required bookmarks for anyone interested in the replacement (and most likely realignment) of the South Capitol Street Bridge. Materials from the summer meetings of these projects are available, as is a mammoth, crash-your-computer PDF showing two of the proposed alternate alignments
. I believe these two stages are pretty much over, so I'll try to keep you posted on the next phases.
