Glover Park Residents React to Wisconsin Avenue Upgrades

Some residents in Glover Park said the Wisconsin Avenue streetscape project will negatively impact traffic in the neighborhood.

A group of Glover Park residents wants the District Department of Transportation to know what they think about the Wisconsin Avenue renovation project.

The group outlined their concerns about the construction in a July 23 letter to DDOT.

In a recent press release, the group wrote,

"As a result of the Wisconsin Avenue Streetscape project, the busy Wisconsin Avenue corridor in Glover Park will be reduced from three lanes each way to two during peak hours and from two lanes each way to one during off-peak hours. This corridor serves not only as access to Glover Park’s homes, businesses, and recreation, but also to those in Burleith, Georgetown, Cathedral Heights, Observatory Circle, and other neighborhoods."

The lane reduction will result in higher traffic density in nearby residential streets, the press release says.

The full letter sent to DDOT is posted above this article.
