North Capitol St & Rhode Island Ave Washington, DC 20002, USA - Eckington
The main traffic light at this intersection is completely broken and ineffective. There is virtually no light emitted from either the STOP, YIELD, or GO light that is visible while heading East towards Lincoln. It creates confusion and is a severe traffic hazard that needs to be investigated and repaired AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
440 Rhode Island Ave Nw Washington, DC 20001, USA - Shaw
This private dumpster for the Josephine condos (440 rhode island ave NW) is always overflowing and not emptied on a regular basis (it has been over two weeks since the last pick up). As a result there has been a significant increase in the number of rats and roaches in the area.
200 Florida Avenue Nw Washington, District of Columbia - Bloomingdale
The new light signal at Florida Avenue and R Street NW is putting pedestrians at risk. On Saturday, July 6 at 10:00 am I noticed that the light only allowed about 10 seconds (including countdown) for walking across 6 lanes to the other side of Florida. This cycle does not provide amble time for someone walking casually, pushing a stroller, elderly, or disabled. Also, with a cautious takeoff in a vehicle (or bicycle) to avoid “light runners” etc. you would be lucky to get more than a couple of cars across Florida going westbound via the 100 block of Florida NW with such short duration. I noticed that this problem existed previously during weekdays, but the countdown was increased to around 23 seconds after the light was taken out of service temporarily. Props for that change; However, I am simply amazed at the lack of coordination on a simple signal light start-up and/or traffic study. It’s time to get it right. Thanks.
