  • North Capital At T St Washington, DC - Bloomingdale

    I walked two blocks to my bus stop (80 bus at North Capital and T St NW/NE) this morning. I had to walk through 2 feet of snow and walk in the street to get around 5 foot snow drifts (from the plows, presumably) just to get there. For the second time this winter, after a heavy snow I had to stand in the middle of the street to wait for the bus. There were 4 of us waiting in the street. An old man actually walked in front of the bus while it was pulling up - luckily the bus driver saw him - but there was no margin of error, and it was pure luck that no one got hurt. Why isn't it standard practice to plow the sidewalks and crosswalks of major streets (like North Capital, Rhode Island, etc.) after a snow storm? After I got off the bus at North Capital and H St, I had to walk literally 20 feet into the road to get around the snow drift the street the plows created. I feel so marginalized as a pedestrian and bus rider, and the grumblings I heard on the bus tell me I'm not alone.

    This heavily used intersection is dangerous. Cars drive fast and don't stop for the significant number of pedestrians crossing the crosswalk.

    Pedestrians cross Florida Avenue NW at R with only use of a crosswalk. There is no light or stop sign for the Florida Ave traffic. I often feel unsafe crossing the street because traffic on Florida is so heavy and coming at a quick pace. I think additional traffic safety devices would help tremendously. There is a DPR park on that corner, so kids cross the street often. Additionally, people walk their dogs in the grassy park across the street.

  • 2121 2nd Street Nw Washington, DC - Bloomingdale

    There has been significantly increased rat activity around our building over the past month -- I have observed at least a dozen during that time in the adjacent alley, behind the building, and in the front of the building (for example, climbing our building's brick wall). Now rats have found a way into the building. This week alone, I've killed three big rats inside the building, and have seen one other one. This is a serious problem that needs to be addressed.

  • 75 Rhode Island Avenue Nw Washington, District of Columbia - Bloomingdale

    Peds are given 23 seconds to cross - which barely gets you to the cross in front of Rustik Tavern. When pushing your kid in a stroller, this can sometimes leave you stranded.

    30 seconds would be juuuuust riiiiight.

    Thanks,

  • Rat Abatement Acknowledged
    1934 1st St Ne Washington, DC 20001, USA - Bloomingdale

    I've owned my property at 1936 First Street, NW for 12 years and this year is the worst I've ever seen for rats. The neighbor's yard at 1934 First Street seems to be the epicenter. I've had bait boxes out for months to no effect. Please help!

  • 25 Florida Ave Nw Washington, DC 20001, USA - Bloomingdale

    There is a crosswalk that is heavily used by pedestrians coming from both Q st and Florida ave, however, there is no yield sign in the middle of the intersection and cars rarely stop for crossing pedestrians.

    I personally was almost hit several times by cars crossing North Capital going to towards the North West.

    Please add Yield to Pedestrians in the middle of the road or add blinking lights.

    Anything would help.

    Thanks.

  • R & N Capitol Washington, DC - Bloomingdale

    It is just another normal day on my bike commute if I get stuck at R st (eastbound) at N Capitol because drivers going south on N Capitol are blocking the road. Today it happened, yesterday it happened. This would be a good place to consider a red light camera or some Don't Block the Box signs.

    Trash has not been pick up in our entire block for over 2 weeks. No trash or recycle service. Alleys are dangerously narrow now. Animals are digging in trash.

  • 200 Florida Avenue Nw Washington, District of Columbia - Bloomingdale

    The new light signal at Florida Avenue and R Street NW is putting pedestrians at risk. On Saturday, July 6 at 10:00 am I noticed that the light only allowed about 10 seconds (including countdown) for walking across 6 lanes to the other side of Florida. This cycle does not provide amble time for someone walking casually, pushing a stroller, elderly, or disabled. Also, with a cautious takeoff in a vehicle (or bicycle) to avoid “light runners” etc. you would be lucky to get more than a couple of cars across Florida going westbound via the 100 block of Florida NW with such short duration. I noticed that this problem existed previously during weekdays, but the countdown was increased to around 23 seconds after the light was taken out of service temporarily. Props for that change; However, I am simply amazed at the lack of coordination on a simple signal light start-up and/or traffic study. It’s time to get it right. Thanks.
