The District department of Transportation announced the beginning of construction on the Klingle Bridge on September 8th. The rehabilitation of this major span has been in the works for at least 5 years.
The Project Manager for the job, Fariborz Navidi-Kasmai has been keeping the Cleveland Park residents apprised of the project since April.
The early return started with complaints regarding the temporary lane signals. Next came the complaints about flooding during a recent rain storm, and finally questions about the engineering expertise of the crews involved in the project. Residents are also asking about the traffic management.
I am glad a few neighbors have the decency to appreciate that the contractor is communicating with the community.
