Anacostia to get new 'sky-way'
This a part of the 11th hour redesign of the 11th Street Bridge project that changes the configuration of southbound DC 295 to pass as an elevated viaduct.
This is part of a plan that was reported favorably by Greater Greater Washington/ David Alpert.
Athough elevated waterfront urban freeways are generally decried, apparantly no one within the 'new urbanist' community felt that the area to the southeast of the Anacostia was worthy enough to even mention this aspect of the design change.
Reportedly, construction on this project started on December 29, 2009.
Where are the protests?
And what is the position of such organizations as the 'Committee of 100 on the Federal City'?
