Cobblestone reconstruction to begin in November
According to DCmud, who spoke with a DDOT official familiar with the project, the D.C. government will begin to rebuild O and P Streets in “early November.”
Last March, DDOT revealed the extent of the planned repairs. Because the cobblestones sunk below the streets’ trolley tracks, which run down the middle of each road, city workers will need to remove both the cobblestones and the tracks, lay a new foundation, and then put it all back together.
At the time, a DDOT official predicted that the whole process will take 18 months.
A long-term project that will require noisy construction equipment? The neighborhood will love this!
