New Demolition Special to Complicate I-395 Tunnel Extension; builds upon remaining sliver of land adjacent to New York Avenue, forcing tunnel directly beneath existing Avenue as it rises to overpass railroad
Project is in immediate need of cancellation, for blocking the remaining sliver of land allowing construction of the I-395 tunnel extension alongside New York Avenue - particularly along the highly useful O Street axis.
Project chocks the I-395 extension whether to the (eastern) New York Avenue corridor or the (northern) B&O corridor.
Project also conflicts with lowering the B&O railroad and the idea of covering said railroad as done via the Grand Arc.
Project testifies to the sheer incompetence of D.C. planning and the degree the authorities are beholden to medievalists that would chock publicly valuable evacuation route, disregarding civil defense (while nonetheless embracing 1984-esque domestic surveillance).
Is scheduled to start construction autumn 2008.
