Where Have All the Naked People Gone?
Jan 25, 2007 6:09 PM
Since they aren't operating in Near Southeast anymore, I'm not tracking them, but for those who are still interested, here's a good roundup by the Metro Weekly
on what the owners of the Nexus, Wet/Edge, and the O Street nightclubs are up to in terms of finding new venues.
Douglass Bridge Makeover Graphic; and a New Page of Photos
Jan 25, 2007 9:42 AM
Today's Post has a big cool graphic
showing exactly how the Frederick Douglass Bridge
is going to get renovated this summer, with 800 feet of the South Capitol Street
viaduct being demolished completely north of Potomac Avenue and another 580 feet of the bridge lowered so that the bridge meets street level at Potomac Avenue
instead of O Street. It also shows that there will be new stop lights on South Capitol at Potomac Avenue and at N Street, and pedestrian-activated lights at O and P streets. The graphic (make sure to look at it, it really is well done) accompanies an article about the bridge's renovation
. And remember, the northbound (inbound) lanes of the bridge will be closed starting this Friday at 10 am until Monday the 29th at 4 am. And plan your summer vacation to coincide with July and August, when the bridge will be closed entirely for the lowering. And here are some additional views of the portions of the
bridge that will be demolished and lowered. (And I'm realizing I'd better create a Bridge Makeover page to pull these all together in one place!)
