Stay tuned for more fun pictures from last week!

L Street NE Tested as a Two-Way Street​

DDOT has converted L Street NE between North Capitol Street and First Street NE from a one-way road into a two-way street. The pilot project, is expected to ease traffic on First Street NE and North Capitol Street by reducing the number of turns vehicles need to make. In order to accommodate 2-way traffic, DDOT removed approximately 25 parking spaces located along the north side of the street.  

SafeTrack Surge 10 Started Yesterday!

The latest round of SafeTrack repairs began Saturday, 10/29, halting train service along the Red Line between the NoMa - Gallaudet U and Fort Totten stations until the week of Thanksgiving.

What's All of That Construction?

The first phase (a 326-unit apartment complex) of the three-part Tyber Place development is officially underway, while excavation for 100 K is just around the corner. The mixed-use apartment/retail project slated for 300 M is projected to break ground by year's end. The three-building development at Capitol Point (Patterson and the NoMa Meander) bringing NoMa's Landmark Theatre, galleries and restaurants to the area remains on track to get going in early 2017.

Thank You for Coming to the NoMa Parks Foundation Community Conversation

The NoMa Parks Foundation held its fifth Community Conversation on Tuesday, October 25, 2016. Over 60 park enthusiasts participated in presentations about new streetscape guidelines for NoMa and planning for the “NoMa Green,” the large park that will be built on Harry Thomas Way NE. Michael Vergason of Michael Vergason Landscape Architects presented draft streetscape guidelines that reconcile two existing, conflicting guidelines and promote a healthy tree canopy in the neighborhood. The NPF kicked off planning for the future “NoMa Green” by introducing Thomas Woltz of Nelson Byrd Woltz, the firm selected through a design competition to develop a concept plan for the park. Woltz shared the competition design, which was developed from existing community feedback gathered over the last five years, and then attendees were able to move to three different stations to learn more about specific elements of the park and share their ideas. If you missed the meeting, the presentation and a link to share your thoughts are available at
