More on the Sherman Avenue streetscape plan
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the Sherman Avenue streetscape plan, which aims to make the street more of a nice-looking neighborhood street and less of a high-speed thoroughfare.
I was looking around for more info and noticed a DCist post that actually has an image of the planned street, and it looks pretty impressive: there's a nice grassy median and tree boxes, bike lanes and narrower travel lanes (plus for some reason a mail truck).
The rest of the DCist post is a little old (the meeting mentioned was the same one I wrote about awhile ago) but at least you get a visual. Construction starts in July, and is expected to finish in December 2011. You can track the project on DDOT's site.
UPDATE: Construction is planned to end in December 2011, not 2010.
