Video: Aspen Street Widening Interview

Following my post on the ANC 4A May meeting, I was asked to participate in an interview on the potential Aspen Street Widening with neighborhood news blog DCCompass.

Aspen Street Widening

You can read the full background of the Aspen Street Widening project here. To summarize, the District Department of Transportation and the master developer of the upcoming Walter Reed campus have proposed to widen the entire length of Aspen Street NW from Georgia Ave to 16th Street to improve pedestrian, cyclist and vehicle safety. The measure is complicated because the widening would require the demolition of two historically protected support buildings on the campus.  The immediate neighbors in the vicinity of Aspen and 13th Streets aren’t too happy about the prospect either.
