No more going west on Park Road past 14th!
View Larger Map
Kind of a weird thing uncovered on the Columbia Heights listserve: if you're heading west on Park Road, at 14th Street you won't be able to continue straight, you're forced to make a right turn. There are concrete islands there blocking it. The idea is to alleviate traffic, and people who want to go west will have to take Kenyon, which then feeds into Park. If it alleviates traffic, great, but it's kind of odd, since if you're heading from somewhere northeast to say Mt. Pleasant, you'll have to move down a bit.
Your thoughts? Annoyance, or just get used to it since it relieves (hopefully) traffic. Here's the map showing the old alignment.
