Mayor Adrian M. Fenty and the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) today announced the acceleration of construction work on Benning Road, NE. On a visit to the work site with DDOT Director Gabe Klein, Mayor Fenty announced crews will now work double shifts to complete the repaving of two travel lanes in each direction by mid-August. In addition, all of the roadwork on Benning, from 16th Street to Oklahoma Ave., including the repaving of the center lanes and installation of streetcar tracks, is now scheduled to be completed in Dec.2009.
“I have personally heard from many residents who have been impacted by this important project,” said Mayor Fenty. “I have asked DDOT and Director Klein to do everything humanly possible to speed up the construction and return this great street to the citizens of the District of Columbia.”
